Konkan Diva Fort Trek Near Pune is a great and an interesting trek. The trek was complete fun and it was interesting. I loved the whole trek. I never thought Pune is such a nice vacation spot. All I thought about Pune was that it is a nice spot to hang out watch movies, drink, and have fun. However, within some kilometres of drive from Pune, there are a lot to explore and have fun with. I totally loved this travel filled Pune that surprised me. This trek is something that shouldn’t be missed.

Konkan Diva Fort Trek is in Pune. Although this is not exactly in Pune, it is in a short drive distance from there. We had a great time here in this trek. The beauty of this trek lies in the rustic beauty of the nature and the hills around. The fort seems brilliant and one might actually want to stay here totally. The forts could have been well-maintained. This was my only concern through the trip. The food, stay, and the trek was all well organized, and there was no complaints on that front. I really hope forward to do more fort and/or night treks soon.

Overview

About the Destination:

Pune, with plenitude of historic forts, hills and cliffs, has become a sought after destination for the avid trekkers. However, if you are looking for a trekking experience that will challenge your senses while also taking you away from the crowd, the Konkan Diva Fort is the place for you.

The Raigad region has a rich history as it was the chosen capital of the Maratha dynasty many years ago. While the Raigad fort is the primary attraction, there were many secondary forts set up in the region to provide protection to the royal families. The Konkan Fort was built to guard any invasion through the Ghol village along the Mutha River.

About the Departure with Details:

The Konkan Diva Fort was built as a watch tower for the capital city of Raigad. It is located at the edge of the Kawlya ghat from where you can see the lit villages of Konkan. The two popular routes to the fort are a walk from the village of Ghol and a climb up the Kawlya ghat from the nearby Bawlya-Kawlya villages.

The trip starts at 06:00AM from Pune and offers you a three hour long Konkan Diva trek to the summit of the fort. The Konkan Diva Fort trek is a challenging trek near Pune that takes you through a dense forest. The most exciting part of the trek is crossing a Devrai (which is a forest dedicated to the Gods). The steep climb up to the base of the fort seems worth it when you see the panoramic view around. The Raigad fort is easily visible from here; you can also spot the Kaal River flowing in the distance. Packed lunch at the summit of the fort will keep you energised.

Post lunch; by around 02:30PM, start descending from the summit and after arriving in Ghol by 05:30PM, start your return journey to Pune; expect to reach Pune by 09:30PM.

    Konkan Diva Fort Trek was suggested by my colleagues. I was wanting to take this trek for few months now, but it kept on being postponed. Finally, I did happen to go here for a tiny honeymoon with my wife. We didn’t have enough leaves left for a proper honeymoon so we ended up going here instead, but nevertheless we couldn’t have asked for a better honeymoon. To start with it was off-beat and not the cozy romantic kind which both of us hate. Also, this was quite exciting and adventurous. We suggest everyone to take this trek to have a really interesting and different travel experience.

    I had a lot of fun with this trek. The trek was indeed different and unique. After moving to Pune, I kept hearing about fort treks a lot. I was initially not so interested with the idea, but gradually wanted to try. When my friends suggested this, we did try and to my surprise, I did agree with them. Although initially I was sceptical about the trip, this trip did seem to be very interesting and I had a great trek to say the least. Fort treks are double the fun as normal ones and half the tediousness. What else could we ask for?

    Konkan Diva Fort Trek is by far the best trek that I have ever been. Well, how shall I start? I am a huge fan of trekking and adventure activities. Mostly treks are surrounded by lovely green landscapes or backdrops. However, I always wanted to trek that is either filled with snow or with rustic rocks and this trek falls in the second category. I loved the fact that this trek was simple, moderately challenged, and fun.

    Fort Treks are fun. I have done them when I was working with an NGO in Jaipur. However, after I moved to Mumbai, I missed those treks or even treks as such. However, when my mom suggested that she read some fort treks in Pune on a magazine, I immediately googled and found this. Without further wait I took this trek immediately. This trek was very exciting,

    This trek is so nice. The biggest positive of this trek is that it is easy and doesn’t require any pro level trek experience. Although good stamina is necessary. A worthy trek.
