Sondai Fort (karjat)
Type : Hill Fort
Grade : Easy
Date : 2nd Feb 2014.
Region : Karjat
App Cost : 300/- Rs
The fort is situated 10 kms away from Karjat Railway Station, overlooking the entire Karjat city. A temple of Sondai Devi, few water cisterns and an amazing view of Morbe dam and a surrounding region can be seen from top. It was probably used as a watch tower.
We can see forts like Prabalgad, Irshal, Rajmachi, Dhak, Peth, Songiri etc. from top. It can be reached easily in 1.5 to 2 hrs from the base village of Sondewadi. This would be a good hike and a day outing for people from Mumbai and Pune.
