Overview

About the Activity:

  • If you are looking forward to spending your next weekend in solitude then going to this campsite near Lonavala will be a great idea, which is away from the crowded tourist stay-ins and closer to Pawna lake.

Also, go for a trek to Tikona fort, which is easy and short but thrilling as well. It offers some of the most amazing picturesque views of Sayadris and the forts around.
  • After reaching atop the fort, you can also witness various water tanks, caves, temples and massive stone wheel. 
  • If you get lucky, you can also get a chance to witness the fireflies around the trees during your visit.

    This trek is really not all that easy especially for the first timers. However, it is very much doable and can be the best introductory trek for all the first timers. It is also a good test to access your stamina before you indulge in steeper and more difficult treks. At the base village, you will see the mesmerizing Mahadev temple which is every bit beautiful. When you start your trek, you’ll find a small steep ascent. After trekking for about 15-20 minutes, you’ll reach a small plateau. From there, you can see the fascinating views on both the sides. Again the view here is worth all the hard work you did for reaching here. Thereafter, you’ll have to climb a few rocky steps. These steps will join to the route and further go towards the fort. When you walk for a while, you’ll see a small fort towards the left. On looking down, you can see the beautiful fields as well as the road that take you to the base of the fort. On walking further, you’ll come across the Chapetdan Maruti or the Lord Hanuman’s temple. It is a small temple with a beautiful stone carving of Lord Hanuman. Another walk of few minutes, will take you to the Lord Tuljadevi Mandir. You can also find a small lake near this temple. From here, you’ll have to cover a short distance to see the remnant of a stone grinder. When you start again from this temple, your final steep step ascent to the top commences. These steps will help you reach the bale-Killa. You’ll have to climb 2 set of steep stairs to make your way to the top. Take note these steps are bigger than your regular steps and you’ll have to exercise due caution while climbing them. There is a rope with the bolts that is fixed. You can take the support of this rope while climbing. Avoid a visit during the monsoon, as this gets slippery since the water flows from these steps. You’ll have to climb the first set of the steps to make your way to the gate and then the 2nd set of the steps to reach the 2nd gate of the fort. Post that, you’ll further climb few steps to make your way to the Bale Killa after climbing the steps, you’ll see Trimbakeshwar Mahadev Temple. There is also a huge water tank on the Bale Killa. After we made our way to the top, we just saw fog everywhere. View from the top of the fort is an absolute fantasy. From there, you can get a spectacular view of the nearby sceneries and the Pavana Dam. Click lot of pictures there! Enjoy your trek and camping.

    To begin your camping here, you’ll have to undertake a short trek and pass the very beautiful Tikona Fort. This small trek with this fort is indeed my favorite. So, what’s special here? Undoubtedly the view! When you reach at the zenith of the fort, you’ll come across a panoramic view of the nearby area. From the top, you can see Tung fort & Lohagad - Visapur forts and the Pavna Dam & Its reservoir. Splendid! It is best to start early post breakfast and reach your camping site by 3:00 PM. Stay there overnight. Enjoy DIY BBQ, all the luscious meals you get as part of your trip and the flawless camping equipment. Check out the following day at 11:00 AM and descend back. Experience the beautiful view of sunrise on your way down. On the way back, we even saw the Bedse caves that is just a few km away from the Tikona.

    Well, to be honest to you, if you are a hard core trekker, this trek is very simple and may not be challenging for your stamina. However, if you simply want to go there for the view, it is very well worth it. It is recommended that you carry with you ample amount of food as you’ll not get any food source or facility here. The only vendors usually found here is those selling lemon juice which can be a refreshing drink during the trek. The Tikkona for is equally beautiful. Do get some pictures clicked there. Some of the volunteers from Pune are working towards the maintenance of the fort. These volunteers regularly come up to clean the fort. Don’t forget to plant a sapling here on your way down.

    Trekked Tikona for 2 times one with two different tour groups. My first trek here was in 2014 and second one followed in 2015. We were around 80 people n the group started travel from Pune on 30th May 2015. Around 7:00 o'clock in the evening we reached the base village and had a wonderful, tasty desi homemade dinner and started trek around 11:00 PM. On the way we spotted so many fireflies which make trek more beautiful! We reach on the top of the Tikona fort around 12:15 am and we setup Tents and one team has initiated campfire, we spent around 2 hours with the music and fun and moved to sleep in tents. Next morning we had breakfast on the fort and head back to base village, started return journey started towards for Pune around 9:30 AM and back to Pune in 2 hrs
