One can reach the fort by a path from left of the fort. As you enter from the devastated structure of big  entrance, you can see some remnants of old palaces along with some water tanks which are now in very bad  entrance you can see some remnants of old palaces along with some water tanks which are now in very bad condition. You can see Sudhagad, Sarasgad and wall of Tailbaila from the fort, also Nandand Ghat,  Savvashincha Ghat and Bhorpaychi Nal, which descend to Konkan.  There is only one way from Ekole village which takes you to the fort. Firstly reach Lonavla, and then take a  h i l f k l ill hi h k h f i l h l d h k bus to Bhaburde village, which is nearly 40 km away from Lonavla. Then another 20 min. walk from village  takes you to the Ekole village. On the way to the fort, you can see a temple of Goddess Garjai. In this temple  there is a Shilalekh which says ‘Shree Garaai Maharajachi and Kille Ghangadachi’. From the left side of this  temple, is a way to the fort. Further you will reach to a steep patch of 15 ft.  l i h f F h ill h h f 15 f A trekking group from Mumbai has now put up a ladder which will take you to the fort. Earlier one had to  use a rope to climb to the fort. p There is no accommodation facility on the fort. But around 20 people can be easily accommodated in the  Garjai temple.  Water is not available on the fort.

  • 17. Un spoilt Un hurried Un touched Un confined Un expected Un conquered Un paralleled Un paralleled Un matched Un stressed Un stressed Un limited Standing as silent sentinels to history are the 350‐odd forts of Maharashtra. Beaten by  g y y the sea waves, lashed at by the torrential Deccan rains, or scorched in the blazing sun,  stand imposing ramparts and crumbling walls , the last lingering memories of  Maharashtra's martial times. Nowhere in the country would you encounter such a  profusion of forts. And such variety. Sited on an island, or guarding the seas or among  the Sahyadri hills, whose zig‐zag walls and rounded bastions sit like a scepter and  crown amidst hills turned mauve.
