About Tikona: As the name suggests, ‘Tikona’ is a huge triangular shaped or pyramidical shaped structure, situated at the height of 3500 ft. It is surrounded by other famous forts like Lohgad, Visapur, Tung and Koraigad. You will also see a ridge that connects Tikona with the rest of the Sahyadri range.
With its massive built and tactical location, Tikona held great importance for Marathas and Mughals alike. It witnessed number of fights between the two empires that tussled to bring it under their reign.
Currently, the fort is being preserved and maintained by a local organization called the ‘Shivdurg Sanvardhan’. They have also laid out cables at the stone-cut stairs for support to climbers.
