Kothaligad Trek 

Trekking,
Price: 0 Every weekend

Kothaligad is a small funnel fort near Karjat (Maharashtra). The fort is also called “Peth Fort” because of its vicinity to Peth village. Unlike other funnel hill forts, the pinnacle or the funnel is carved from the inside, forming a circular staircase that reaches the top.

The superlative view from the top of the pinnacle combined with this unique and awe-inspiring engineering feat definitely deserves a visit.  Kothaligad is accessible via a moderate 5.6 kilometre / 3 hour trek starting from the road head at Ambivali village. A dirt road connects Peth village to Ambivali and this makes Peth village accessible with a motorcycle or with a four wheel drive vehicle. However, we recommend that you park at Ambivali and walk to Kothaligad, because there are some stellar view points along the way.

Kothaligad Trekking point near Mumbai is an ideal one day trek in monsoon. This fort stands in the company of various other forts like Rajmachi, Dhak, Siddhagad and Bhimashankar. Drinking Water Facility: There are many a cisterns and tanks on the fort, but the one near the cave is reliable.The pinnacle of the Peth can be seen from the village. It looks like a filed surface. On reaching the top of the fort, we see caves carved in huge rocks.

The first one is the cave of Goddess, besides which is a water cistern and the last one is the specious Bhairoba cave. A flat floor and well-sculpted pillars are specialty of the cave. Along the Bhairoba cave, steps are carved leading the pinnacle. Four – Five potholes and some cannon balls are scattered in the fort. Kalwawantinicha Mahal, Nagfani, Siddhagad, Malanggad, Chanderi, Prabalgad, Manikgad, and Matheran all these surrounding historical places are visible from top of the fort Peth. If you are looking for places to trek near Mumbai Peth Fort is a good option.
