Vasota Fort straddles the ghat line, protected by a bear-infested jungle. It is inaccessible except by a long and arduous trek. It has two forts, an old one and a newer one. It is possible to visit the new Vasota Fort through thick jungles.
At Bamnoli (Base Village) regular motor ferry services are available that take us to Met Indavali from where we can to walk on the western shores of the lake. Proceed along an arm of the Koyna lake to the west. The route is now thickly forested with no human habitation. Climb through the dense forest by a tricky route to reach the top of the fort.
Entrance in the dilapidated state, remnants, Hanuman temple and Mahadev temple are the only monuments still standing on the fort. but the plateau offers the breath-taking view of the thick forest and the Koyna Back Waters. The hill where Nageshwar Cave is situated can be seen from the Kalkai Machi. From here one can observe both side the Ghat area as well as long drops in the Konkan.
The most fascinating point is Babu Kada, which offers the spectacular view of the steep cliffs of the mountain range falling straight deep in the Konkan area. The mountain in front is known as Old Vasota Fort.
