History knows that the Sahyadris have been witness to a lot of action as different rulers set foot in the territory. In the February of 1661, these mountains were once again turned into a battleground as the Marathas fought the Mughals in what came to be known as the Battle of Umberkhind. A small army of 1,000 Marathas led by Shivaji Maharaj strategically blocked 30,000 Mughals and in a matter of just 4 hours, the Mughal army led by Kartalab Khan surrendered, begging for life. Shivaji Maharaj agreed to let them return, on the condition that they leave all their equipment behind including their weapons, horses and food. He also gave them a special offer - anyone from the Mughals who wished to join the Maratha army was welcome!
Join this easy-level but historically rich trek to Umberkhind, which starts from Lonavala and is a gradual descent trek throughout. You will pass by grassy plains and the jungle, small streams of flowing water, if you’re lucky you might even spot crabs and scorpions on the trail! Say hello to the villagers as they pass by doing their routine chores and descend all the way down to the Amba River. The plaque at the war memorial ‘Samarbhoomi’ has a detailed account of the battle which will leave you awestruck for sure!
Reliving history as you walk on the same grassy plains and jungle trail that Kartalab Khan and his Mughal army took before Shivaji’s Marathas blocked them
