Sondai is not popular or unknown fort, stands approx 6kms of Karjat overlooking the Karjat-Chauk highway and offers a beautiful view of Morbe Dam, Prabalgad, Irshal, Rajmachi, Songiri forts and Matheran mountain range.

There are 2 water cisterns on machi (at the base of the pinnacle) and steps are carved out of rocks to go on the topmost point where an idol of Sondai Devi stands. Two more water cisterns are on the way and has potable water. Two missing steps in the rock makes one to climb a small patch of 15 feet but proper hand holds and foot steps are available and that makes it easy even in monsoon.

We at Trek Mates India Invites all for a One Day Trek to Tringalwadi on Saturday, 10th October 2015.


Little info about the fort 
Type: Hill Fort
Height: 3283 Feet above MSL (Approx)
Grade: Easy
Endurance: Medium

Base Village: Tringalwadi

The exact period of construction of this fort is not known, however, by virtue of ‘Jain caves’ near the foothills, one can roughly estimate the fort to be in existence since 10th century. Also there is no evidence regarding the period during which it was under control of Marathas, however, during the year 1688; Mughals took control over the fort by perfidy.

Tringalwadi Fort with Trek Mates India

On the Top from the devastated castle leads us further ahead to the secret doorway of the fort after taking a right turn from the same path, one has to climb down to reach this door. Further down step one can notice the door being carved within a single sheet of rock. On its right hand side one can see a statue of Lord Hanuman, about 6-7 feet high. A carved step on the mountain ahead leads to the top of the fort.
A beautiful Goddess Temple makes it picture perfect.
