Karnala Fort, Shirdhon
1 Day

Event Overview

Karnala fort is a hill fort in Raigad district about 10 km from Panvel city. Currently it is a protected place lying within the Karnala Bird Sanctuary. Today, the ruins of the fort are a popular destination for hiking and tourism.It is a wonderful trek of 1 hour from the bottom of the hill. There are 5 resting places on the pathway made by forest department. The final climbing steps near the entrance of the fort are made safe by iron railings. It is not advisable to cook food at the base of the pinnacle, as the smell of smoke irritates the Honey Bees. The water from the southernmost rock cut water cistern is portable. First aid is available at the Forest guest house.Trekking during the monsoon is really an exhilarating experience.
