  • Trip introduction

    If you've done a few treks around Maharashtra, you're ready for the Kohoj experience! The route can be too long for some, taking 2 hours to reach the plateau, and there is further to go from here. However, because of this, you can expect some spectacular views from the top.

    One of the best views (and photo opportunities) is the reflection of the fort in the lake at the base. Make sure to try and catch this.

    At the top, there are multiple cisterns to explore, a couple of temples, a bastion, and more. You'll love the fascinating land features at the top of the fort. The strong winds have eroded the rocks over time creating pinnacles and rock formations that are very tempting to explore.

    The trip includes a vegetarian breakfast.

    Destination

    This fort has had multiple rulers, the most notable being the Mughals and the Marathas, adding to its historical importance and the architectural remnants at the top. Unfortunately, most of these ruins are badly maintained, but it shows you how ancient the fort actually is.

    From the top, you can get spectacular views of other forts like Takmak, Tandulwadi, Asherigad and more.
