Little about Trek :-
1 . Tringalwadi Fort :-
Type : Hill forts            Fort Range : Kalsubai District : Nashik          Grade : Easy
Tringalwadi Fort is located at an altitude of 3,000 feet at Igatpuri. The top of the fort is shaped like a turban. The steps and walls of the Fort still stand in fine condition. Behind the fort, on the edge, via the secret path is a must see is Hanuman Temple.The fort provides excellent views of Kulang and Kalsubai mountain ranges. A temple dedicated to Lord Hanuman is nearby. During rainy season, one will have to travel three to four kilometer on foot to reach the fort as the surroundings will be cultivated.
Although the exact period of construction of this fort is not known, however, by virtue of ‘Jain caves’ near the foothills, one can roughly estimate the fort to be in existence since 10th century. Also there is no evidence regarding the period during which it was under control of Marathas, however, during the year 1688; Mughals took control over the fort by perfidy.
‘Pandav leni’ caves are at the foothills of the fort. Its entrance door is decorated with beautiful carvings on it. A statue of Lord Gautam Buddha can be seen inside the ‘Vihar’. Below this sculpture one can see the inscriptions carved on the stone.
2. Kavnai Fort : –
Type : Hill forts Fort RangeIgatpuri (Western range) District : Nashik Grade : Medium
The main entrance door of the fort still stands in a good condition. On entering the main doorway we can see a cave on the right hand side. We have to go via this route only to reach the fort top. On reaching the fort top we can see a small pond towards southern side of the fort. There are many dilapidated structures of mansion by the side of this pond. There is a bastion at the western end of the fort. Also a cistern is located near this bastion. Half-an hour is sufficient to wander over the fort top. Kalsubai range, Trimbak range, Tringalwadi are some of the sightseeing points around the fort from over the fort-top.
