Bhatkanti: Tung Fort



Tung is also known as 'Kathingad'. As the name suggests, the fort is difficult to climb. Tung is in Mawal region which was truly ruled by Marathas. Tung is one of the difficult forts in Maharashtra. The height of the fort is almost 3500 feet and almost 1200 feet area of the fort is steep ascent. One can reach the fort from Kamshet near Lonavala. 'Phagne Dam' on Pawna river near Kamshet is the place when you can start for trekking. Though the trek is tiresome, still you can enjoy the amazing view of the dam and twin Tung and Tikona. Now a days, there is not much to see on the fort, except the temple of 'Devi Tungai', temple of 'Devi Tuljai' , a small lake and a beautiful cave. But one can enjoy the marvelous view of Lohgad - Visapur on the north and Tikona on the east.
