Little about trek
Type : Hill Fort Fort Range : Karjat District : Raigad Grade : Easy
The fort is commoly known of the peth because the peth village is situated in its base, also known as 'Kothaligad', approximately 21Km from Karjat. Even though the fort is small in stature has a vast historical background. This fort was more of a 'defense station' than a strong fort. Peth was mainly used for ammunition storage. Peth gained importance during Sambhaji's empire.
The fort is surrounded by other forts like Bhimashankar, Padargad, Rajmachi and Siddhagad. The lower plateau is connected with Wandre Khind on the ghats in the east.The pinnacle of the Peth can be seen from the village. On reaching the top of the fort, we see caves carved in huge rocks. The first one is the cave of Goddess, besides which is a water cistern and the last one is the specious Bhairoba cave. A flat floor and well-sculpted pillars are specialty of the cave. Along the Bhairoba cave, steps are carved leading the pinnacle.
