YatriSahyadri has organized a one day Trek to Songiri/ Palasdhari Fort on 7th June 2015.
A small hill fort across the railway line from Palasdari Lake. Palasdari Fort is a hill fort near Karjat in Raigad District of Maharashtra. The fort stands on the edge of the Karjat range. Palasdari Lake is situated nearby. Since this trek is not much popular amongst trekkers, one can experience the thrill of Trekking in a Dense forest region.
