Pavankhind Mohim

Dear All,

 

We @ शिखर वेध have planned our yearly event of Panhala – Pavankhind – Padbhraman Mohim on 9-10th July 2022. This Mohim commemorates Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s escape from the besieged Panhala to the safety of Vishalgad.

यंदाचे वर्ष ही मोहीम आयोजित करण्याचे ‘शिखर वेध’ या संस्थेचे बारावे वर्ष आहे !!!

The cost for the event is about  Rs. 3450 / – per head

This includes Mumbai 2 Mumbai fare for Transportation by Private Vehicle … All Veg. foods for 2 days as mentioned & Accommodation in village house … (Excludes Sunday Dinner )

Note:- 1) For Pune Participants AND Those participants who are Repeating this Pavankhind Mohim event with SHIKHAR VEDH again

The cost for the Mohim would b Rs. 2950 / – per head

History:

 

Panhala – Pavankhind -Vishalgad 

 

Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was under siege of Siddi Johar on Panhala fort from 2nd March 1660. The siege lasted long and all food stocks had finished and made things difficult for Shivaji Maharaj. It was impossible to defeat the 30000 soldiered troop of Siddi. Shivaji Maharaj with some 600 mavalas decided to escape to Vishalgad, 65 kms away. It was Ashadi Pournima, with heavy rains falling. Chatrapati Shivaji Raje informed Siddi that he would surrender hence Siddi troops were little careless. Taking advantage Shivaji Maharaj escaped from Panhala. He wasn’t safe till he reached Vishalgad. Some how Siddi’s troops spotted Shivaji Raje’s escape, he immediately sent horsed troops behind him and they got hold of Shivaji, who was later brought to Siddi’s camp. But it was Raja Shivaji’s game plan; person whom they had caught was not Shivaji Raje, but Siva Kashid Nhavi who was immediately killed. Siddi somehow came to know that Shivaji Maharaj was on his way to Vishalgad, and so sent troops behind him. Shivaji Raje knew that Siddi’s troops were following him. Baji Prabhu, Chatrapati Shivaji’s loyal sardar decided to stay in Ghod Khind with 300 mavalas, a col were mountain ridges near Vishalgad unite and was the only way to Vishalgad then. Baji Prabhu with his 300 mavalas had guerilla warfare at Ghodkhind and held the Siddis troops there. They fought bravely till their death. It was only after Baji heard the canon fire indicating safe reach of Shivaji Maharaj at Vishalgad, he gave his life. It was 21 hour continuous journey from Panhala to Vishalgad. Story didn’t end here; Chatrapati Shivaji Raje had to fight his way to Vishalgad. Vishalgad is a fort difficult to conquer, difficult to lay siege. Also even if siege was laid, one would have enough time to escape to Konkan. Siddi was building siege on Vishalgad, but Shivaji Raje with his diplomatic trick made Adil Shah bring back Siddi Johar.

Korigad (also called Koraigad or Kumwarigad) is a hill fort located about 20 km south of Lonavala in Pune district, Maharashtra, India. Its date of construction is not known but likely predates 1500. It is about 929 meters above sea level. The planned township of Aamby Valley is built over the fort’s southern and eastern foothills. The closest village is Peth Shahpur about 1 km north of the fort. To the east, there lie two artificial lakes part of the Aamby Valley project which later drains into the Mulshi reservoir. There are two lakes on the top of the fort. This fort can be visited at any time of the year. Even a night trek during summer gives a nice experience. There are a lot of camping sites on the fort. There are three temples on the fort which provide ample cover. The Korai Devi temple can accommodate 25 persons.

During 1657 Korigad was captured by Shivaji Maharaj along with Tung, Tikona, Visapur, Lohagad Fort and a few more. Twelve forts were kept with Shivaji Maharaj after the treaty of Purander, Shivaji Maharaj kept Korigad Fort with him which proves the importance of this fort.

Dear All,

We @ शिखर वेध, has arranged a day trek to Avachitgad near Roha …

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.
