SAGARGAD TREK ON 9th and 10th JULY 2016

Dear Trekkers, 

Enjoy the monsoon with us as we have arranged an Overnight Trek to Sagargad Fort & Vanartok Pinnacle on 09th and 10th July 2016 (Leaving on 09th Night) 

History of the fort and about the place:- 

This fort is said to exist since the Satvahan dynasty. In the books it is mentioned in the Treaty of Purander (1655 AD) where Shivaji Maharaj gave 33 forts to the Moghuls. It is also said that Sagargard Fort was later given to Angre, the naval chief of the Marathas in return for loyalty against Shahu Chhattrapati of Satara. In the mid-19th century the British took the fort and built retreat homes on it.

Vanartok Pinnacle : Its on the southern side of the fort. This Pinnacle is independent of the sagargad plateau.The problem of climbing this pinnacle is that it is not bolted therefore it is dangerous.
