Highlights

Vasota Fort is one of the famous fort for trekking in the Sahyadri Mountains. This trek in Maharashtra is known as one of the best treks of this region because of it’s wilderness and beauty. As the fort is situated in Konya Wildlife Sanctuary, the fort is surrounded by thick forests and river which makes the destination an ideal one for trekkers to delve into its beauty and forget about the distance they cover.

Vasota trek offers a thrilling experience as you would be walking through a dense jungle and you would get some amazing views of the surroundings. The jungle is filled with wild animals like wild dogs, sloth bears, leopards, and even tigers.

Associated with Maratha history this fort still has its historical charm which gives time to trekkers to explore the fort and go for sightseeing after reaching the top of the fort. The fort also offers the breathtaking view of the Konya Backwaters and the forests of the wildlife sanctuary.

History of Vasota Fort:
Shivaji Maharaj named the fort “Vyaghragad” (Vyaghra – means tiger), owing to its difficult natural defense. After Shivaji Maharaj, the brave Maratha Bajirao Peshwa carried on the Swarajya mission of ousting the Mughal invaders from our country. In 1818 however, British bombarded the Vasota fort with heavy artillery thereby destroying many buildings. It is said that Vasota fort was built by Kolhapur Shilahara Raja Bhoja II (1178–1193). It was captured by Shivaji Maharaj in 1660.
