About Koyna Wildlife Sanctuary:
Koyna Wildlife Sanctuary thrives in a dense, green forest reserve situated in the heart of Satara district of Maharashtra. The protected forest area was declared a Wildlife Sanctuary in the year 1985 by the government of India. It is centered in the Western Ghats with abundant water flow and rich vegetation, proving to be a thriving environment for animals to survive in.
The entire sanctuary spans an area of 423 square kilometers and ranges in elevations between 600 meters to 1000 meters of altitude. The sanctuary is nourished by several water bodies, amongst which rivers Kandati, Koyna and Solashi are primary water sources. A wide range of fauna have been found in the region and are protected by the government and forest development authority. Some of the most spectacular species found in Koyna Wildlife Sanctuary include Royal Bengal Tiger and King Cobra. In 2012, UNESCO declared Koyna Wildlife Sanctuary as a World Heritage site, considering the number of architectural findings in the area.
Also known as Vyaghragad, Vasota Fort is one of the famous forts for trekking in the Sahyadri. Vasota Fort trek in Maharashtra is known as one of the best treks of this region because of its wilderness and beauty. As the fort is situated near Konya Wild Life Sanctuary, the fort is surrounded by thick forests and river which makes the destination an ideal one for trekkers to delve into its beauty and forget about the distance they cover. Associated with Maratha history this fort still has its historical charm which gives time to Trekkers to explore the fort and go for sightseeing after reaching the top of the fort. The fort also offers breath taking view of the Konya Backwaters and the forests of the wildlife sanctuary.
