About Tikona Fort

A dominant hill fort near Lonavala, Tikona rests at a height of 1066 metres above sea level. Besides providing an unhindered view of the Sahyadri hills along with Lohagarh Fort, Visapur and Tung Fort, it makes for an interesting and relatively easy trek. You can take the road from Lonavala that cuts across the Lohagarh Ridge and then runs along the shores of Pawna Lake to reach Tikona Fort. The entry to the fort is through a small cave which leads to a guard tower followed by a set of five caves. A massive stone wheel is located within the fort. At the top of this attraction are an ancient Buddhist cave and some water tanks. You can see the expanse of the hill from the topmost peak of this place. A strong gush of wind blows across your face and the nature arrests you in its charm. If you are a first-time trekker, this will make for an awesome introductory trek.

Historical Context: One of the prime forts of Maratha empire, Tikona Fort, was seized by Mughals for a short period. Shivaji Maharaj took it under his regime in the 1670s from Mughals. Till Sambhaji ruled this fort; it was a significant influence to Marathas. Signs of a broken temple can be seen till date in the Fort that provides glimpses of its history.
Pro Tip: Stock up water and other energy boosters before taking this trek
