  • Trip introduction

    This night trek to Korigad fort is great for beginners looking for a unique trek experience. It's an easy trek, but because you're doing it at night, you'll be extra alert.

    You'll start the trek in the evening, and it's only about 1.5 hours to get to the top. Along the way, you'll get beautiful views of the surrounding landscape lit by the moon. At the top, you'll enjoy a crackling bonfire and dinner, and then retire to tents for the night. In the morning, you'll wake to dewy views of Aamby Valley, Nagphani Point, Tung and Prabalgad Forts, the Matheran region and many mountain ranges.

    Destination

    Located at an altitude of 3028 feet, Korigad Fort lies in the midst of a forested region about 20 kms away from Lonavala. There is an ancient temple at the summit dedicated to the local deity Koraidevi, Lord Shiva and Vishnu. The 2 km wall around the fort stands intact and there are 6 canons and several ruined idols and structures, so there is plenty to explore.

    Destination highlights

    • Do the easy Korigad trek by the light of the moon.
    • Enjoy a night of camping atop an ancient fort.
    • Explore the ruins of the old temple structure and ponds at Korigad.
    • Spend a fun evening with a bonfire and tent stay.
