Hope to c u on trek
Details r as follows
Brief Introduction about Avchitgad: –
Height: 300 metre
Grade: Easy …
Time: ~ Maximum 1.5 hrs from Medha, Base Village
Location: Roha, Raigad District
The city of Roha is situated on the banks of Kundalika River. Avchitgad is situated in the mountain ranges around Roha. Nicely tucked away from the main Shayadri range this is a rather unexplored fort (as per trekkeres are concerned). This region is beautiful, and the fort was one of the rich forts of Maharashtra. Dense woods along the mountain have made it bit difficult to ascend to the top.
Fascinating Spot: –
The main entrance to the fort is still in good condition. The bastion on the way from Medhe is in much better state. It was used for keeping a watch on the surrounding region. As we proceed further from the main entrance, we come across the remnants of old constructions on a neighboring hillock.
There is a beautiful dodecahedron (16 sided) shaped lake on the top. Near to it is a statue of Lord Khandoba. The fort is not much wide, but stretches long enough. It takes about two hours to see the fort. The forest around the fort is dense and the fauna comprises wild hogs, leopards, foxes, monkeys, etc.
From the top of Avchitgad we can have a glimpse of Telbaila, Sudhagad, Sarasgad, Korigad to the Noth-East & Dhangad, Raigad and Savashna Ghat on the South – East side. All these forts lie within a 25 km radius of this fort.
This is a best monsoon trek.
