About Place

Pratapgad Fort
Pratapgad (also transcribed Pratapgarh or Pratapgad) literally ‘Valour Fort’ is a large fort located in Satara district, in the Western Indian state of Maharashtra. Significant as the site of the Battle of Pratapgad, the fort is now a popular tourist destination. This is a relatively easy trek. There are just 450 steps which you would need to cover to get to the top of the fort. The trek is not at all difficult and even novice trekkers should be able to complete it with ease.

Bridge of river Koyna from Shivajian era
One the route one can see the old bridge on river Koyna made with interlocking stones. One side of the bridge has plane facade while the other side has pointed facade to cut the water flow and minimize the damage due to strong water flow.
It is said that the bridge is from the 17th century and was built under Shivaji Maharaj era.

Radtondi (translates to frown face) Ghat
Radtondi Ghat is known for Afzal Khan’s descend from Desh to Konkan on the way to mighty “Pratapgad”. Radtondi Ghat starts at village Met-Tale and ends at village Par. Once the route was the well-developed route at the time when it was under use. Big pathway, gravel and clay as pavement, jungle to provide shade and gradual slope, in and all a nicely constructed route.
The pathway was so wide that at least 4 horses or 4 bulls or 2 bullock carts could pass each other at one time, leaving no room for doubt that Afzal Khan could descend this route sitting in a palanquin.
