Brief Introduction about Vallabhgad / Samangad / Gandharvgad / Kalanidhigad / Pargad / Tillari / Amboli / Ramtirth / Bhudargad :

Grade: Easy & Exciting

Time: ~ Most places vehicle reaches atop … OR some are abt 15 mins frm base

Location: Gadhinglaj-Chandgad Amboli region

Vallabhgad: Vallabhgad Fort is a fort in the Belgaum district of Karnataka state, India. It dates back to 1674, and is said to have been built by the Maratha ruler Shivaji.

SAAMANGAD: This fort has inspiring fables woven around it. Situated in the Gadhinglaj taluka the fort has secret passages and strong bastions.

PAARGAD: Surrounded by lush greenery and a picturesque forest, the fort has exquisite bronze statues of Shivaji and a temple of Bhagawati Bhawani.

KALANIDHIGAD: Is said to have been built by the Maratha ruler Shivaji.
BHUDARGAD: This fort is situated on a huge vertical rock amidst mountain ranges. It is said to resemble from a distance, the crescent moon in the matted hair of the god Shiva..

RAMTEERTH: A scenic picnic spot in Ajra taluka, with ancient temples, a river, an old coffee plantation and an orchard, lend a quaint charm to this place. According to legend, the place is so named because Rama stayed here during his vanvaas or exile in the forest. It is well known for its breathtaking natural beauty

AMBOLI: Snuggling coyly, in the southern ranges of the Sahyadri hills, Amboli at an altitude of 690 m is the last mountain resort before the coastal highlands settle, with a sigh, to form flat beaches. Visit numerous view points for a pleasant view of the lush hills and fertile plain. Seaview Point offers a rare view of the land all the way to the golden Konkan coast. You can spend hours angling for a fish at Hiranya Keshi or picnic at Nagartas Falls, Mahadev Gad and Narayan Gad point
