Height: 4511 ft
Type: Hill trek
Time: 3 hrs from Dehne, village
Contribution: Rs 600 per person.
Last date: 16 July 2015 to Register
Ajoba is one of the highest peak in Sahyadri. One of the best places to trek near Mumbai. We can be climbed either from eastern or from western side. The climb from eastern side takes longer time. There is a Valmiki Ashram at half way to the fort. The rest path to the top is said to be risky during monsoon. Near the Ashram, there is a small hut where we can stay. A small water stream provides us with pure water. The way beyond Ashram leads to a rivulet, crossing which we can reach the cave of ‘LUV-KUSH’. To reach this spot we have to ascend the way of waterfall for one and half hour. Above this cave there is a precipice called ‘Cradle of Sitamai’. In the cave there are the carved “Padukas” or the footprints of Luv and Kush. This precipice is a real challenge for trekkers. The ashram is a sacred place and people from all over Maharashtra come here. There are some carved stones near the ashram, on which some carved idols depict some story.
Recommended train timing to reach Asangaon is as below. Please board the 2nd compartment from ahead (Kasara end). This is a train till Asangaon.
