We @Nisargamitra Panvel invite you for a one day Trek to Kurdugad Fort on 22nd July 2018 (Sunday).
Height: 2020 Feet above MSL (Approx)
Base Village: Jite
After the rainy season the earth gains wonderful green look. Such environment is really great to visit forts in Konkan.
Near the base of the fort is a temple of goddess ‘Kurdai’. On the way up, there are remnants of a gateway. Entering by this gateway a Hanuman idol, about 1m in height grabs our attention. Behind this idol we find a natural ghal (groove). This groove can easily accommodate around 100-150 people. Fort has 2 large pinnacles, of which one comprises the Fort top. One can traverse the path around the pinnacle, but it is damaged completely at certain places in between. There are one or two water tanks on the fort. Fort top offers excellent view of entire nearby region. Location of the Kurdugad attaches to it real significance, strategically. A pass called Tamhani ghat, can be easily controlled from here. Besides, it has Raigad and Kokandiva forts on its backside. Half an hour is enough to explore the fort top.
