How to reach:
One should alight down at Kadegaon bridge, 4 km away on Wai-Satara road. From Kadegaon bridge come to village Vyajvadi. There are two ways to reach to the fort from the village of Vyajvadi. The way frequently used takes more time. The other one goes from the left side. It takes half an hour to reach the fort by the latter way while the first one takes one hour. Both ways meet after some distance, from where it takes only 10 minutes to reach the top of the fort. The last part in this path is quite slippery. To the opposite side of Vyajvadi, there is a village by name ‘Mhasava’. There is away from here, but very slippery.
Time to reach from base village: 1-2 hours
What to see:
Top of the fort is actually very small. There are remnants of old buildings. The bastion at the entrance is dilapidated. One can see 5-6 cisterns to the left of the main gate, on the lower side of the cliff. There is a small cave to the right. Climbing up 20-25 steps further, we reach the top. To the left there is Hanuman temple. Even outside the temple there is an idol of Hanuman. Plinths can be seen in surrounding area. The rampart is still in a good condition. One can climb down to the village Mhasava from a gap in the cliff opposite to the main entrance. There is a hillock near it & on a stone there are some indecipherable writings. Further search might reveal some more interesting discoveries. It takes approximately one hour to see the fort.
