Kothaligad, also known as the fort of Peths is a popular climbing spot close to Karjat in the city of Mumbai. An engineering marvel, the fort was in fact used as a watchtower to keep an eye on the advancements of the army in the surrounding areas. The mysterious cave paintings on the summit date back to the 13th century, but not much was known about them until the 18th Century.
The easy climb at Kothaligad Trekking alongside beautiful environs make it a favoured destination for enthusiastic trekkers. The unique architecture and engineering is a proof of the talent of the Maratha warriors. The chimney like structure on top resembles a lighthouse and was a major advantage for all those who captured the fort at various times, including the British and Maratha empires!
