About Sondai

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.
