Adventure Geek invites you for Tikona Fort Trek
Tikona Fort Trek, also renowned as Vitandgad fort, is a major hill fort in Maval region near the Lonavala. Tikona fort, literally means triangle fort, had witnessed many dynasties ruled in the Maratha region. This was the nerve centre of the many activities of entire Malwan Pawna regions. The small hamlet close to the fort is Tikona peth. The fort’s mammoth entrance is a special attraction.
Tikona fort is a great trekking destination for the adventurous tourists.
One can get the eye catching views of the Pawna Dam and the forts at Visapur Trek, Tung Fort and Lohgad Trek. The fort encloses a lake, Satvahan caves and the temple of 'Trimbakeshwar Mahadev'. The fort was built during the Silhara dynasty. There is a temple on top of the peak. The view of the Pawna dam, Kathingad and valleys from the top is breathtaking.
Bedse Caves are built at the latest in 1st century BC (circa 60 BC) – thus they belong to the oldest ones in Maharashtra. If compared with the later cave temples, Bedse Caves are much simpler and smaller, with fewer furnishings. It’s a part of a trilogy (Bedse, Karla and Bhaje Caves)
