A budget Trek to kunjargadh in Maharashtra from pune.

Tripoto

To fill up a weekend with a trekking destination, we planned a trek to kunjargadh also know as kombad killa headed from pune. It is situated in Vihir village near kotul town,Ahmednagar District. we had booked a tavera car to travel to the base village, in all we were around 9 people and the cost of travelling came to approx 400rs which means total expenditure of my trek was just 400rs from pune.

we decided to hike the fort from the base village phopsondi this village looks similar to any village in the north-east region its a must visit place in the monsoons. you would see many waterfalls on your way, some height around 20-30 ft tall. the roads towards this village are narrow and the journey towards was mesmerizing.

Just talk with a local person regarding the route to the fort it will help you to reach. At the starting point you will see a water tank which is a common place for the villagers to collect drinkable water and you will also locate a watch tower green in color to your right hand side, after hiking for around a hour you would clearly see the top of the fort which seems wall like structure to you from below.
