About Fort

  • Base Village:

  • Region:
  • Raigad
  • Description:
  • Kokandiva fort is used to keep watch on Kavlya ghat area and capital of Maratha empire i.e. Fort Raigad. This fort is 70-80 kms away from Pune. One has to reach in "Ghol" village from Panshet dam. From Ghol, one can either go to "Gaarjaiwadi" by walk or by 2-wheelar. If you are going to "Gaarjaiwadi" from "Ghol" on your 2-wheelar, remember that, road is in bad condition. I recommend you to start your trek from Ghol village. From Ghol village, go to "Gaarjaiwadi" village in 1 hour. Form Gaarjaiwadi, it takes almost 1 and half hour max to reach on top of the fort. One can see large cave, water cistern on top of the fort. One can see Lingana fort, Raigad fort, Railing plateau, Torna fort and Kavlya ghat from top of the fort.
