Dear All,

We @ शिखरवेध has arranged little explored Khanderi – Underi Twin Trek in Alibaug Region on Sunday 7 April 2013

Khanderi and Underi forts are situated on two islands near Thal village, 8 Kms north to Alibaug and 20 Kms off the coast of Mumbai. Both the forts still stand proud in the Arabian Sea with their intact fortified walls.
Khanderi was built by Shivaji Maharaj to keep a check on the Siddhis of Janjira and British. Marathas started building fortification in 1672. One can see Iron Canons with cart wheels on Khanderi Fort. The most prominent structure on Khanderi is a lighthouse built by British. Underi Fort is smaller than Khanderi and is nearly circular. It was built by Siddhi Kahim in 1680.

Khanderi is located a bit far from the beach and can be reached irrespective of High Tide or Low tide as it has a jetty but Underi can only be reached in low tide.
