As the name suggest, its a ‘jewel’ of a fort situated atop a hill overlooking the Bhandardara region. Kalsubai peak and the Konkan-Kada are visible from here, along with a number of waterfalls!
Standing tall amid other great peaks of Alang, Kulang, Kalsubai, and Katarabai, this fort is also a part of the Ajoba mountain range. The caves up there can shelter dozens of trekkers at a time. The view of lakes from atop will leave you speechless!
Enjoy scenic views of Bhandardara
Experience nature at its best!
