Tattva Adventures Invites to 1 day monsoon easy trek to Tringalwadi on 11th Sep 2016
Brief Introduction about Tringalwadi fort
Height: 3283 feet
Grade: 1/5
Endurance 2/5
Location: Igatpuri
The exact period of construction of this fort is not known, however, by virtue of ‘Jain caves’ near the foothills, one can roughly estimate the fort to be in existence since 10th century. Also there is no evidence regarding the period during which it was under control of Marathas, however, during the year 1688; Mughals took control over the fort by perfidy.
Pleasant atmosphere and the cool breeze, makes every trekker visit this fort again. On reaching the top the view of the Tringalwadi Dam is breathtaking.
On the Top from the devastated castle leads us further ahead to the secret doorway of the fort after taking a right turn from the same path, one has to climb down to reach this door. Further down step one can notice the door being carved within a single sheet of rock. On its right hand side one can see a statue of Lord Hanuman, about 6-7 feet high. A carved step on the mountain ahead leads to the top of the fort.
A beautiful Goddess Temple makes it picture perfect.
One of the best Shades of green admist the Clouds!!!!!
