Kohoj Fort Trek | Mapping Journeys
Heart-Shaped Lake, Bastions, Cisterns, Temples and above all, a man - shaped pinnacle. Looking at the well-dug cisterns, the fort can be said to be belonging to Bhoj-period. However, no such evidences are available. What is known about this fort is that Kohoj was under Portuguese colonies in 16th century. They fortified it and later Peshwas conquered this fort in 1737. The hike to the top is a freshening experience.
The route till the top is an amazing experience with ponds and lush greenery all around. Kohoj is located about 104 km from Mumbai off the Mumbai - Ahmedabad Highway.
The fort is said to be about 800 years old and finds a mention in the Purandar treaty along with 22 other forts which were surrendered by Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj to the Mughals on 11 June 1665.
Kohoj has a moderately difficult gradient and it takes about two and a half hours to reach the main plateau from Vaghote village which is situated a the base of the fort. To reach the highest point it takes another 10–15 minutes. The height of the fort is about 3200 feet.
