Kamalgad Trek

1 Day

Kamalgad Fort is a square hill fort located in Wai taluka of Pune District, Maharashtra, India. The fort is situated at an elevation of about 4511 feet above sea level and is considered to be an easy grade level trek. It is a popular destination for trekkers from nearby cities like Panchgani, Satara, and Mumbai.

The Trek

The trek to Kamalgad Fort starts with a climb up a hill rock from the base village of Tupenwadi. The initial trail is covered with trees and is considered to be safe and easy. It takes around two hours to reach Machi, an open area with dense trees. On the way to Machi, there is a villager’s hut where trekkers can rest and have meals at reasonable prices.

From Machi, it takes about 20 minutes to reach Balekilla, a 30 to 40 feet tall scrap rising above the forest. The trail is preferable to visit from October onwards, as the monsoon season offers lush green landscapes but can also be slippery.

The Fort

The Kamalgad Fort covers a flat area of about four acres and is surrounded by sheer rocks. Earlier, the fort could be reached through a man-made tunnel that started from the base of the cliff and emerged on the top. However, the tunnel is now blocked by a large boulder. There are no ruins of buildings or walls at the fort, and the natural fortification of the rocks likely provided sufficient defense against enemies.
