Junglelore Trek to Fort Tunga 16th August 2009

Dear All,

Fort Tunga was built with an intention to keep watch on transport from
Borghat & to protect the region of Pavan Maval. Very strtegically
located, other Forts namely Lohagad, Visapur, Tikona & Pavan Maval can
be easily located from this fort.

The Plan:
The drive through Amby-valley takes us to the base village of Tunga.We
commence the trek from a Hanuman Temple.A walk of around 45 minutes
takes us to an intact arch which is a doorway to the fort. The fort
seems like a small pinnacle after we arrive at a plateau which has a
temple & a water tank. It takes around 30 minutes from here to reach
the top.
