One Day Trek to Karnala


The thumb like pinnacle which can be seen towards west of Panvel on Mumbai Pune Highway always attracts attention of travelers, it is Fort Karnala. The base of the fort is surrounded by bird sanctuary.

The fort dates back to Saatvahan era and the great Shri Shiv Chhatrapati conquered it in 1657AD. The fort was surrendered to Mughals during the Purandar treaty in 1665AD. Later it was again conquered in 1670 AD along with Kalyan region. Post death of Shri Shambhu Chhatrapati, it was under Mughal Rule until it was captured by the Peshwas. Colonel Protheroe from the British Army captured the fort in 1818 AD.

The top of the fort is meager and has ruins of an entrance and a housing complex. There is a pinnacle which one can climb with use of appropriate equipment and skill of rock climbing. At the base of pinnacle, there are cisterns and warehouses.
