We @ Bhramanti365 invites you for One day road ride trek to Tung fort on 8th November 2015.
Brief Information about the Trek :- Tung Fort (or Kathingad; difficult fort in Marathi) is a Hill Fort in Pune District of Maharashtra ,Tung Fort was built before 1600 CE. It was built by the Adil Shahi dynasty but was captured by Shivaji . It is small, and not able to hold more than 200 troops at a time. As such, it would not have been able to defend itself on its own for a long time. Its shape and structure suggest that its main function was as a watchtower guarding the road to Pune city. The Dhamale family, one of the Deshmukh from the Maval region, was charged with ensuring the security of Tung Fort. During invasion, it served to provide a temporary distraction for invaders. Thus, the major forts of Visapur and Lohagad would have time to prepare themselves to meet the invading army. This fort served as a watchtower in the past because from top of the fort, a lot of area in the Maval region of the Pawana and Mulshi valleys can be seen, and thus, from the top of the fort, a watch on these areas can be kept.
