Vasota stands tall amidst the dense evergreen forests of the Koyna Wildlife Sanctuary and will mesmerize you with its beauty.Each contour of the Vasota hills enhances its beauty many times over. A trek through this dense forest is an exciting and thrilling experience.
ONE NEED TO HIRE A BOAT FROM BAMNOLI AND AFTER PLEASANT BOATING OF 1 AND HALF HOUR THE ACTUAL TREK STARTS.
Situated on the western edge of the Satara District Vasota is covered in dense forest all the way through. With panoramic view of the shiv saagar lake on the eastern sife and the konkan plains on the west and surrounded by the river Koyna Vasota makes a special treat for trekkers.
There are two forts, juna Vasota and navin Vasota. juna Vasota on top of babukada – the second tallest cliff in Maharashtra is not accessible. There are two entrances to the navin Vasota one of which is in a dilapidated state as of now and the fort can be entered through only the second entrance. On entering the fort there is a
Hanuman temple which is devoid of a roof. From here the straight path leads to the remnants of the fort. The left path leads to the Kalkaiche Thane. On the way is the Mahadeo temple and ahead of it is Machi with spectacular views of the surrounding region. You can also see the Babukada reminiscent of Konkankad of Harishchandragad. The mountain ahead of Babukada is the old Vasota.
