About the Event

About the Event

Sondai is one of the lesser know forts around Mumbai. It was used as a watch tower and stands 6kms west of Karjat overlooking the Karjat-Chowk highway and offers a beautiful view of Morbe Dam, Prabalgad, Irshalgad, Rajmachi, Songiri forts and Matheran mountain range.


The name of the fort is derived from the temple of the Goddess Sondai at the top the mountain. There are 2 water cisterns at the base of the pinnacle and steps are carved out of rocks to go on the topmost point where an idol of Sondai Devi stands. 


It is an easy 1-1.5 hrs hike from the base village and ideal for beginners or those who are trekking after a long time
