Koraigad is conveniently located in the famous Lonavala region, close enough to be easily accessible for one-day getaway and far enough to avoid the touristy hustle-bustle at the usual spots. It isn’t tiring as it appears to be, making it a perfect place for a fun trek.
An easy level fun trek to the top
Fort exploration— sturdy walls, massive gates and cannons
Visit the temples
Have fun at the ponds
Team building games
Situated about 20 kms outside Lonavala, Koraigad fort stands little over 900m above sea level. One can easily find a flight of about 500 steps laid out to reach the fort from Pethshahpur village in less than an hour. Another route from Ambavne village is more challenging during rains as it becomes slippery.
The fort was named after Goddess Koraidevi. Her temple, which has recently been renovated and restored, can be visited inside the fort along with two other temples dedicated to Vishnu and Shiva. The fort also houses couple of refreshing and usually clean ponds which are a treat to the eyes with clouds floating by during monsoons. Such a relaxing sight!
Since it is a short trek, it leaves ample time for fun activities along the way. A pit-stop on the way will provide an exquisite view of the Aamby Valley and the lake. Don’t miss it!
