Overview

Koraigad (3050ft above sea level) is a hill fort situated near south of Lonavala, just 3hrs drive from Mumbai and 1 hr drive from Pune, Maharashtra. This fort was incorporated into his kingdom by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj along with the forts of Lohagad, Visapur, Tung and Tikona in 1657. The fort is visible to the left when you drive from Lonavala to Peth Shahpur, On the way, is the famous Bhushi Dam and Tiger point to hop on. Your actual trek starts from Peth Shahpur village, half of the distance you walk through the bushes and sparsely dense forest and the other half is covered by steps. The steps are steep but safe and you can reach the top of the fort with a break. Half way through, there is a small Ganesh temple and a cave. The interesting part of the fort is that its wall is completely intact and one can walk along its entire perimeter (approx. 1.5km).

Once on top you are greeted to an expanse of greenery which will make you go 'Wow'!!! It is providing an excellent 360-degree view of the surrounding area including Amby Valley and the backwaters of Mulshi Dam. On the top you can walk along the walls of the fort which may take an hour normally and much more since you cannot miss the numerous photo opportunities. On the fort there is a temple to its patron goddess Korai Devi which also exists along with several smaller temples dedicated to Vishnu and Shiva. There are 2 lakes and small streams running wherein you can get your feet wet. It has six cannons - the largest of which is called the Laxmi Toph, is located near the Korai Devi temple.

It is easy for everyone to reach the top, the fort has mesmerising views from all four sides. Steep walls of the fort overlooking the vast expanses of Sahyadri range is a delight while the cool winds touch you. Best time to visit this fort is during September to November as entire fort is filled with greenery and colourful flowers all around. An ideal trek for a group with first timers and young children.
