Pathfinders Trek to Vasota on 29 Jan

Greetings from pathfinders not just outing.
We are arranging a trek to Vasota .

Please go through the details.

Brief Introduction about
Height: 3614 feet
Location:Satara Dist.

Vasota is also known as Vyaghragad (fortress of the Tiger). Vasota fort lies within the Koyna sanctuary (total area 423 sq km), and you need a special permit from the Forest office at Bamnoli to get in. The forest at the base of Vasota can be reached only by hiring a boat from Bamnoli and crossing the Koyna lake (1.5 hours). There is no regular boat service. The boat drops you at Met-Indavli, which is a usually uninhabited forest camp, and returns to Bamnoli immediately. A 2-hour tough uphill hike through dense pristine forest takes you to the ruined fortress.

There is no potable water at the top, you must carry your own or fill from a stream on the way up. This is a very isolated and remote mountaintop — no human habitation and no shelter. Do not attempt in the rainy season. You can admire the ruined remains of a palace, Shiva temple and gate to Peshwa’s prison on top. Fantastic views of Babu Kada, Old Vasota, Nageshwar Lingis, Koyna Lake, Koyna Forest…and yes, the stars above !!!

Limited Seats are there. You can Confirm your seat by paying your contribution/fees as early as possible(Before 21Jan 2012).
