Overview

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!

About the Activity with Details:

Embark on an unforgettable Kothaligad Trekking that will engulf you in its stunning architectural prowess. Your expedition begins as you embark on a drive to the base of the fort. Meet your trek mates at the pre-decided location of Fergusson College main gate. Munch on a fortifying breakfast and refreshing tea and start making your way towards the top of the fort. The easy inclines will eventually bring you to the mysterious summit where you can explore and discover the lighthouse like structure that is carved with staircases from the inside. Let a delicious lunch calm your muscles and explore the area around.

Relax for a while and start descending back to the base village, eventually reaching the Aambivali caves that are rich with carvings and paintings dating back to the 13th Century. Watch ancient stories unfold in front of your eyes as you make way through the pathways lush with greenery of the approaching monsoons.
