The temptation to give into wanderlust is always next to impossible. Notwithstanding the crazy summers that we are witnessing, we ventured out to Palghar last weekend and came back refreshed and surprised! So this weekend, we decided to do what we like the best. Go trekking to a new place! 

Lets put on those trekking shoes and head to Tikona fort aka Vitangad. Located close to Kamshet, in the Mawal region, it lies close to the twin forts of Lohagad and Visapur. Owing to its pyramid shaped peak, its aptly named Tikona which means triangular in Marathi. A trek with moderate difficulty level, this can be conquered in a short span. A cave and a cistern dot the entrance and the path going uphill adjacent to the caves leads us across to the bastion. Fortifications and a few cisterns adorn this area. Climbing further ahead leads to a temple, followed by a moat and finally the flag post. 

The views from here include the majestic forts of Lohagad, Visapur, Tung and other hills such as Morse, Jambhuli and the beautiful Pauna region. A splendid view of the entire Mawal region spreads across in front of our eyes. Pauna lake also offers boating opportunities and if time permits we shall make a stop over by the lake to indulge in some mild water sports and watch the sun set into the horizon. 

The plan:

Breakfree bus leaves McDonald's Borivali at 530AM and will take the Western Express highway upto Bandra(Kalanagar) and then subsequently stop at Sion, Chembur, Vashi and Panvel. If you live anywhere on this route, we'll be happy to stop at a place convenient to all of us. 

Cost: Rs. 750 including breakfast, lunch and to and fro transport and whole lotta fun! 

Kindly note: We recommend Action Trekking Shoes, running shoes normally give away to the tough terrain and become useless. 

Carry 2-3 litres of water with you along with some dry snacks.

Consumption of Alcohol, Narcotic substances and cigarettes is prohibited. It could lead to possible expulsion from the trek.
