Information About Forts
Sagargad is a beautiful fort very close to Alibag. This hill-fort, 7kms from Alibag is an old fort of Shivaji’s times at 1357ft from sea-level. Half-way to the fort is Siddheshwar temple and an Ashram. Near temple a river flowing by, and most of all a cliff just behind the temple where the river becomes a waterfall. The best place of the trek….the temple and a stream which joined a waterfall….The view from the edge of this waterfall is fantastic. On the fort one finds nine tombs of Satis. The place is called Sati Plateau. Besides this plateau a thumb-like erect land mass is known as Vanartok, it falls on the mid-way to Sagargad. The place is unforgettable. Apart from a ganesh temple, there are a few man made ponds with water and green sprawling gardens on the flat mountain surface.
Alibaug is a renowned place, well known for the beautiful beach and the fort named Colaba. Fort Korlai, which is quite beautiful. It is surrounded by sea on three sides. It is not a tall fort. The total height is about 275 m. The most fascinating one is the beach here. The blue ocean on one side and the creek named “Kundalika” on the eastern end create scenery. The fort is situated at the mouth of the creek.
