How to reach:
The base village of this fort is Bitangwadi, which is quite interior to the main road. Ghoti town is located on NH3 about 30 km east of Igatpuri, a known place on Mumbai – Nashik route. From Ghoti toll, proceed towards Bhandardara. At about 19 km, we need to take diversion at Taked Phata. From Taked, we have to reach the Ekdara village diversion at 11 km and take the road to Bitanwadi which is 6 km away from the diversion.
From Bitangwadi, the trail to the fort comprises quite steep rock cut steps and a rope might be useful. Avoid trek in monsoon as the steps become slippery.
Time to reach from base village: 1 hr
What to see:
Since the mountain cap has scarce area, this mountain was fortified only to function as a watch tower. Hence there are very few remnants on the fort. However, this is a good place to hike and stay overnight as it offers scenic views from the top.
