About ChalNikalPade event at Korigad:
Korigad is a hill fort located about 20 km south of Lonavala in Pune district, Maharashtra, India. Its date of construction is not known but likely predates 1500. It is about 923 meters above sea level. The planned township of Ambey valley is built over the fort's southern and eastern foothills. The closest village is Peth Shahpur, about 1 km north of the fort. This fort was forcibly taken over into his kingdom by Chatrapati Shivaji along with the forts of Lohagad, Visapur, Tung and Tikona in 1657. On March 11, 1818, Colonel Prother tried to take over this fort but even after a prolonged siege could not make any headway. Finally on by igniting the stored ammunition by means of a loose cannonball he succeeded and this fort went to the British army.
