Trek to Jungli Vasota fort on 26 Jan from Pune Pimple Saudagar

1 Day Trek to Vasota Fort in Koyna Wildlife Sanctuary on Sunday 26 Jan 2020

Vasota also knows as VyaghraGad is famous for its dense jungle route surrounded by the Tiger reserve area in Koyna Wildlife Sanctuary.
One can reach Vasota base by 1.5 hrs boat ride.
Why do we need to boat across a lake to get to a fort?
Cause that’s how the fort’s defenses were intended to be, barely assailable from any sides.
The fort has dense forests around it, Dense here means you can walk past the wildlife and not even know it was there. Wild animals have been known to avoid and evade humans here.
A trek through this dense forest is a thrilling experience. The Vasota trek is the most popular and exciting jungle trek of Maharashtra.
Well be checking in at Babu Kada, the 2nd highest cliff face of the Sahyadri and one can listen to amazing eco sound effects at Babu Kada.
Being situated in the Koyna WLS, Vasota offers amazing surprises for wildlife lovers.
The trek through the dense forest makes you forget the distance you cover.
