A brief history:


The origins of the fort are fairly unknown but according to recent history the Korigad fort was incorporated into the Kingdom of Chhatrapati Shivaji along with other neighboring forts of Lohagad, Visapur, Tikona and Tung during the 16th century and later during the 18th century the fort came under British control.



There are two routes by which trekkers can reach to the top of Korigad fort. The first route is from Peth Shahpur and the other is from Ambavne village.The route from Peth Shahpur is easier as compared to Ambavne village and experienced trekkers can try the latter to enhance their trekking skills.



The trek is fairly easy and one can reach the top after climbing a series of 510 steps. Once at the summit the fort has water reservoirs, temples dedicated to various deities.



The walls of the fort are still intact and trekkers can easily walk along its entire perimeter for about 2 km and enjoy breathtaking views of the landscape surrounding the fort.


There are several other ruins and old structures on various parts of the fort to explore. There are 6 canons scattered at different parts of the fort the biggest one is the ‘LaxmiToop’ located near the Korai Devi temple. Do carry sufficient food and water as there are shops or drinking water easily available.



Camping Info:


The fort is very good place for camping as there are plenty of open spaces where campers can set up their campsite. Ideally carry your own tents and in case you do not have one then trekkers can camp at the Korai Devi temple which can accommodate at least 10 people for the night. Furthermore the local villagers are very helpful and are more than willing to help in case of any need.
