???? ??? – Trek to Sondai on Saturday 8th October 2011

Dear All,

We at ‘???? ???’ have decided to go for a one day trek to relatively unknown fort of Sondai on Saturday 8th October 2011.
.
The fort is situated 4-5 kms away from Karjat Railway Station, overlooking the entire Karjat city. A temple of Sondai Devi, few water cisterns and an amazing view of Morbe dam and a surrounding region can be seen from top. It was probably used as a watch tower and forts like Prabalgad, Irshal, Rajmachi, Dhak, Peth, Songiri etc. can be seen from top. It can be reached easily in max. 2 hrs from the base village of Sondewadi. This would be a good hike and a day outing for people from Mumbai and Pune.
