Fergusson College is a well-known landmark in Pune and can be easily reached by road.
This trek route takes you through dense forest cover alongside the Koyna river to the ruins of the Vasota fort. The fort lies in the middle of a lake, so you’ll have the fun of a boat ride to get there. The fort is gorgeous, with the ruined remains of a Shiva temple and the gate to the Peshwa prison on top of the hill. From the top, there are pretty views of the Koyna lake and sanctuary.
Vasota Fort is situated in dense forests surrounding the Koyna river, in the Satara district, Maharashtra. It is also known as Vyaghragad (Fortress of the Tiger). The Vasota fort was used as resting place for army that returned from wars during the Maratha era.
