Bhatkanti: Tikona Fort



Tikona is another hill fort in Maval region near Kamshet. The fort is of pyramid shape and hence popularly known as 'Tikona' or Triangle. It is also called as 'Vitangagad'. The fort is almost 3500 feet high but not as difficult to climb like his partner 'Tung'. One can reach 6 Kms to 'Tikona Peth' village from Kale colony - near Kamshet. 'Tikona Peth' is the village nearest to fort Tikona. Though Tikona is not very difficult, but its 'Bale killa' is a difficult job. The trekking is tiresome. There are few monuments on the fort to see like the big doors, the temple of 'Trimbakeshwar Mahadev', a water tank and few caves of Satvahan era. The view of Pawna dam and other forts like Tung, Lohagad and Visapur is beautiful.
