Dear Friends We Invite you all For One day monsoon Trek to Chanderi Fort With MumbaiRangers on 10 july 2016


Amidst the lush green vegetation surrounding the mountain ranges of Nakhind and Mhasmaal, Chanderi Fort emerges like a masterpiece crafted with nature’s 

best hands. Situated at a height of 2,330 ft, the hill fort, now in ruins, offers a beautiful view of the surrounding area as well as presents one of 

the toughest trek routes around Mumbai.Although worth mentioning as the jewel in the crown of forts in the district of Raigad, there is no significant 

history attached to this fort. Near the caves on the fort are visible some remnants of fortification. This is the only sign to designate Chanderi as a 

fort. Chanderi is famous for water streams and its difficult route. In monsoon route gets thrilling with water flow and tricky.


In May 1656 Shivaji Maharaj conquered all the territory up to kalyan-Bhivandi-rairi. This was when this fort came under the rule of Marathas. Lack of 

development, Low water storage areas, absence of significant constructions, limited facilities for people to stay and extremely difficult approach 

road seems to suggest that rather than a fort, this was possibly a military base.
