Brief Introduction about Kothaligad / Peth fort : –

Height: ~ 3100 feet
Grade:  Simple
Time: ~ Maximum 2.5 hrs from Ambivali, Base Village
Location: Karjat region

Kothaligad is more commonly known as the fort of Peth because the village of Peth is situated at its base. 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.

Itinerary for the Trek is as given below:
