    ours was a wonderful trip to the beautiful vasota fort and koyan wildlife santuary. Reaching an trekking on vasota has a complicated process to be undergone. Bamnoli is the nearest village from where one can head towards the fort. But to reach you need to depart on boat called launches. And yes it is a very peaceful journey on the koyan river.... wao feels out of the box. Trekking process is complicated in a sense that you need the proper permission before embarking on trek. And overll its a fantastic point!!

    unless you are full prepared i won't recommend you to visit the three vasota divisions. The old vasota fort has dense forest reserve and is home to many animal habitats too. Whereas the new vasota fort is the actual fort point where trekkers and historians come for their task and the last division called nageshwar cave which a small lord shiva temple is mostly visited by worshipers. To make your trip even more memorable you can stay for few moments at wildlife sanctuary to spot different animals and birds. over all its a great place guys....

    The temperature range of the Vasto fort is always between 13 to 27 degrees which makes it favourable destination. Vasota is rich in beauty and wilderness, there is konya backwaters and konya wildlife sancruary just beside the fort. These sites are the buzzing points of tourists and trekkers. Because of this fort and the wildlife sanctuary, the small village shayadri became so popular. The nearest city is pune thus it is easily accessible too.

    Guys a complete package i would say, yes you will not only see the beautiful old historical fort of marathas, but you will also witness the charming beauty of koyna backwaters, evergreen dense reserve of koyna wildlife sanctuary and the spectacular nageshwar caves. The trekking starts from the vasota jungle and you can also see different kinds of trees. the best part about vasota is that it is quite a short trek that suits everyone.

    Well guys vasona fort trekking is definately a memorable experience.. got to see the beautiful fort and the guide told us about its importance in Maratha war too. It was a great feeling, for a while i almost felt as if i was in red fort. yes it was truly unique experience. i wish i could have spent few more days there. Not only the trekkers but families also came to see the beauty of the place. We loved our trip!!

    Best place to start the trekking is from pune and best time is between december to may. while going for trek you will cross, satara, kass plateau and then bamnoli. finally from bamnoli you will go on boat to reach vasota. Though it has complex access but a rewards are great. One of the finest Trek spot in maharashtra. its is a beautiful place and the top view of the river and forest is just amazing to trek. must go for a shayadri lovers

    Trekking in the beautiful trails of vasota fort does not require any master guidance but a guide will be helpful... this fort has historical connections so many historians visit the fort too. To reach the fort you need to cross a stream on boat and then you can start your trekking. The konya backwaters are also good sightseeing points.

    okay let me tell you about two most beautiful attraction of vasota fort region, first is the nageshwar cave which is the sacred temple of lord shiva and second is the koyna dam which is popular for water sports and activities. Where the nageshwar has a unique shivaling on which water drops throughout the year naturally so people consider it a very sacred place. And the koyna dam where one can enjoy boat riding, water scooting and many more things, tourists buzz there quite frequently. So guys who are planning to visit vasota fort then apart from fort, sanctuary and backwater do consider these places as well.

    Our journey started from Bamnoli, where we spent our first camping night, next morning after having breakfast we went to tke permission of trekking on vaota fort from the authorities of forests department. Soon we got the permission and we departed on boats, yes this is what many people love and many hate. you need to cross the stream to reach MET indavli. And from there after having sight seeing you climb all the way to asota fort. the returing follows the same path too. It is an awesome destination and people loved trekking and wildlife sanctuary visit.
