Trek to Mohangad

One Day Trek to Mohangad

Overview

Mohangad is also known as Jaslodgad or Kaslodgad this fort is located at Varandha Ghat between Bhor and Mahad. Not much history is known except that from a letter from Shri Shiv Chhatrapati to Baji Prabhu Deshpande. The letter mentions that the fort was unused for long time and should be repaired and reestablished as military station with some army. Dr. sachin joshi discovered the fort in 2008.

There is a temple of Janani after whom the mountain is named. Varandha Ghat is an ancient trade route is which is still in use. The fort may have been established to guard Varandha Ghat. The base village is Durgadi. There aren’t much signs of history on the mountain top apart from ruins of a house and some water cisterns. One can see Kavalya, Raigad, Pratapgad, Rajgad and Torana from the mountain top. The route passes through dense forest. We plan to trek here as our pre monsoon expedition.
