Tikona Fort (Vitandgad fort), is a major hill fort in Maval region near the Lonavala. Tikona fort, literally means triangle fort, had witnessed many 

dynasties ruled in the Maratha region. This was the nerve centre of the many activities of entire Malwan Pawna regions. The small hamlet close to the 

fort is Tikona peth. The fort’s mammoth entrance is a special attraction.

It is also a great trekking destination for the adventurous tourists.  One can get the eye catching views of the Pawna Dam and the forts at Visapur, 

Tung and Lohagad. The fort encloses a lake, Satvahan caves and the temple of ‘Trimbakeshwar Mahadev’.
