Dear Friends we invite you all for One Day Monsoon Trek to Kothaligad (Peth) Fort with MumbaiRangers on 7 August 2016
Kothaligad (also called Kotligad or Kothligad) is a small Fort (3100 ft) is situated to the east of Karjat near Karjat-Murbad Road in the Indian state of
Maharashtra. It is one of the famous treks in the Karjat area, because of its small height and easy climbing. It is also known as the Fort of Peth because
of its vicinity to Peth village at its base. There is a small temple and large cave at the base and a chimney like tunnel to the top of the fort.
This pinnacle is carved from inside forming a staircase reaching the top. There is a tank of water at some distance from the cave and another one at the
