Located at about 110km from Pune, Ghangad is quite a sight for the nature lover’s eyes. The fort has seen scant expeditions over the past few years and remains still untouched by mans concrete fingers. The Mulshi River flows beneath the fort and gives the place the feel of a historical movie shoot. If loneliness had a royal ambience, it would be here at Ghangad.
The fort is surrounded by Korigad, Telbaila and Sudhgad, yet it stands out from all the surrounding places as the ‘fortress of solitude’. Few have dared to explore this mysterious area, and Ghangad to Korigad Trek is one of the most exciting things to do after a hectic week. Korigad, located about 20km away from Lonavala, Pune also holds great historic value as India’s formidable forts.
