Kunjargad

 

Kunjargad(Kombadgad) FortHeight : 4200
Type : Hill forts Fort Range : Baalaghat
District : Ahmednagar Grade : Medium

 

Ways To Reach :
There are two routes to reach the fort.

१) From Vihir village:-
Reach Otur village on the Mumbai-Kalyan-Murbad_Malshej ghat route. A road besides the bus stand of Otur village goes to Brahmangaon(16 kms) – Kotul(16 kms) – Vihir(16 kms). Vihir is the base village of Kunjargad fort and from here there are two ways to reach the fort.

(A) From the cleft/pass between the fort and the hill to its right side. This route takes lesser time and all the parts can be visited.

(B) By climbing the hill to the right side of the fort we come across natural formed caves and can proceed further to the fort.
It would be best if one ascends via the cleft (A) and descend via the hill (B).

२) From Fofsandi village:-
Reach Khireshwar village on the Mumbai-Kalyan-Murbad-Malshej ghat-Khireshwar. The route to Fofsandi is next to Khireshwar. The single route from the village which goes to the fort does not have the idols of Lord Hanuman and Kaloba on its way. For that one has to circumvent the hill and reach the side of Vihir village and turn again. To visit the caves another route has to be taken.

One can ascend the fort from Fofsandi village and descend via Vihir village. As there are minimal bus services in this area it is recommended to travel by one’s own vehicle.

पोहोचण्याच्या वाटा :
कुंजरगडावर जाण्यासाठी दोन वाटा आहेत.
१) विहिर गावातून :- विहिर गावात पोहोचण्यासाठी मुंबई – कल्याण – मुरबाड – माळशेज घाट मार्गे ओतुर गाव गाठावे. ओतुर बस स्थानकाच्या बाजूने जाणार्‍या रस्त्याने (१६ किमी) ब्राम्हणगाव – (१६ किमी) कोतूळ -(१६ किमी) विहिर गाव आहे.विहिर या कुंजरगडाच्या पायथ्याच्या गावातून गडावर जाण्यासाठी २ वाटा आहेत.
(अ) कुंजरगड व त्याच्या उजव्या बाजूचा डोंगर यामधील खिंडीतून गडावर जाता येते.
(ब) कुंजरगडाच्या उजव्या बाजूच्या डोंगरावर चढून नैसर्गिक गुहा पाहून किल्ल्यावर जाता येते.
त्यातील गड व त्याच्या उजव्या बाजूचा डोंगर यांच्या खिंडीतून जाणार्‍या वाटेने गडावर पोहोचण्यासाठी कमी वेळ लागतो.
सर्वात उत्तम मार्ग म्हणजे गड चढतांना खिंदी मार्गे चढावा तर उतरतांना बाजूच्या डोंगरवरून उतरावा म्हणजे सर्व अबषेश पाहून होतात.

२) फोफसंडी गावाकडून :- फोफसंडी गावात पोहोचण्यासाठी मुंबई – कल्याण – मुरबाड – माळशेज घाट – खिरेश्वर गाठावे. खिरेश्वरच्या पुढे फोफसंडी गावाला जाणारा फाटा आहे. गावातून एकच वाट कुंजर गडावर जाते. या मार्गाने गडावर आल्यास हनुमानाची व काळोबाची मुर्ती पहायला मिळत नाही. त्यासाठी डोंगराला वळसा घालून विहिर गावाच्या बाजूस जाऊन परत फिरावे लागते. तसेच नैसर्गिक गुहा पहाण्यासाठी वेगळा फेरा पडतो.
फोफसंडी गावाकडून गड चढून विहिर गावात उतरता येईल. परंतु या भागात एसटीची सेवा मर्यादीत आहे. त्यामुळे स्वत:चे खाजगी वहान असल्यास उत्तम.

Kunjargad is good fort where you can find old structures and lots of stone carved water ponds. Lots of water storage but in monsoon all are dried. One natural cave which is open on both side of fort. Mandavi river generate (start) from kunjargad. Mandan rhushi situated in same place so rever got mandavi name

Ensure that you wear the correct fine grip footwear during any season for this trek, terrain is super slippery during dry or wet times… One more thing, wear ONLY full trousers and full sleeve shirts for this trek.. Lot of tick flies… They’ll bite the hell out of you.

One of the most amazing treks you will experience. Start from Vihir gav. Do not deviate from foot road(पाऊल वाट). It takes 2 hrs to 2.5 hrs to reach the top. Be careful in the mid way while climbing and stepping down, path is narrow and the valley is steep. Use good quality shoe which has good grip and does not slip.

 

Now this was an unexpectedly awesome trek! Take a local guide along and make sure to carry torches. Takes time to climb – 1.30 to 2 hours, but the climb is neither hard nor tiring. The highlight of this trek is the cave / narrow tunnel situated at almost the top of this fort. That was a thrilling experience! Quite a few artifacts are present on the fort. Drinkable water is also available. Night stay is possible if you carry tents, otherwise not. Highly recommend one!
