Description

Kavnai lies roughly 150km from Mumbai on the Trimbakeshwar road. Igatpuri is 18 km from Kavnai. Village Kavnai is a religious place where Saint Dnyaneshwar rested for few days. The fort is located north of the village. It is said that the fort was built by Moghuls.
The journey from Mumbai takes you through the beautiful Kasara ghat via the scenic NH3 national highway. The route from the base village till the top is medium grade. While climbing up we encounter the main entrance of the fort which is still intact and has stone ladders built to reach the top. A small cave can be seen on the right handside of the ladder patch. There is an additional iron ladder placed for the safety of trekkers.
The fort top gets strong winds all throughout the year and even during summer season it gets very cold n windy during night. The top of fort houses a beautiful water pond and few water cisterns as well. The view from the top is a 360 degree Panorama.
A small temple was built recently on the top , inside which an interesting pandit named Laldas resides, he has been staying on this fort for almost 6 years now all alone.
Pre trek experience is not really required for Kavnai and can be done easily by first timers as well who are physically active.
