Kashmir Great Lakes Trek

Kashmir Great Lakes Trek

About Kashmir Great Lakes Trek

Kashmir with its unparalleled beauty, postcard perfect scenes and almost European vistas frankly needs no introduction. The Kashmir Lakes Circuit trek traverses some of the hidden jewels in the Kashmiri mountains cape – the pristine alpine high altitude lakes of Vishansar, Kishansar, Gadsar, Satsar, Nundkol and Gangabal. If you are looking for green meadows filled with colourful wildflowers, pristine colour changing water lakes, meandering streams and amazing Himalayan views from high passes, then the Kashmir Lakes Circuit trek is the most highly recommended trek.

Starting from the popular hill station Sonamarg, the trail follows ancient routes taken by the gujjars, the nomadic shepherds of Kashmir. Every day on the trail, trekkers are treated to breathtaking views of rugged snow capped mountains, colourful grasslands, and trout filled crystal clear lakes. There are also high passes to be crossed, the highest being at 4191 m and rocky terrains to be navigated frequently. It goes without saying that it is a physically and mentally challenging trek and would require the trekkers to be physically fit and to have a penchant for the Himalayan remoteness to enjoy this trek.

Kothaligad Trek - Peth Fort Trek

Kothligad

 

About Kothaligad Peth Trek 

Kothaligad is more commonly known as the fort of Peth because the village of Peth is situated at its base. The pinnacle of the Peth can be seen from the village. On reaching the top of the fort, we see caves carved in huge rocks. Along the Bhairoba cave, steps are carved leading the pinnacle. Small water tanks and some cannon balls are scattered on the fort. The first one is the cave of Goddess, besides which is a water cistern and the last one is the specious Bhairoba cave. A flat floor and well-sculpted pillars are specialty of the cave.

Tung Fort Trek & Camping

About Tung Fort

Tung Fort also called Kathingad; difficult fort in Marathi is a hill fort in Pune District, Maharashtra, India. Tung Fort was built before 1600 CE. It was built by the Adil Shahi dynasty but was captured by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj . It is small, and not able to hold more than 200 troops at a time. As such, it would not have been able to defend itself on its own for a long time. Its shape and structure suggest that its main function was as a watchtower guarding the road to Pune city. The Dhamale family, one of the Deshmukh from the Maval region, was charged with ensuring the security of Tung Fort. During invasion, it served to provide a temporary distraction for invaders. Thus, the major forts of Visapur and Lohagad would have time to prepare themselves to meet the invading army. This fort served as a watchtower in the past because from top of the fort, a lot of area in the Maval region of the Pawana and Mulshi valleys can be seen, and thus, from the top of the fort, a watch on these areas can be kept. In 1657, it became a part of Swarajya with all other forts situated in Maval region. In 1660, Netaji Palkar was appointed to protect this region. In 1665, Jay Singh invaded this region. Diler khan and others destroyed the villages around Tung & Tikona, but were unable to conquer these forts. Then, according to Treaty of Purandar (signed on 12th June 1665), Kubad khan with Halal khan and others took over fort on 18 June 1665. Its sharp, conical peak makes Tung Fort a prominent landmark, even from a distance. It has an oval shape, thick walls and numerous bastions. A steep climb on grassy slopes leads to the ruins of a temple at the summit. A rocky staircase leads several feet down to a water reservoir. From the top of the fort, the Lohagad, Visapur, Tikona and Korigad forts are clearly visible.
