Dear Friends we invite you all for Jungle Trek to Vasota and Lake Side Camping on 5 and 6 Dec 2015 Leaving 4 friday night   Bamnoli lake Bamnoli famous for its natural beauty, is a major tourist attraction located in the Satara District of Maharashtra at distances of about 36 kms from  Satara City and 20 kms from Kaas Lake. Bamnoli is a village situated on the banks of Shivsagar Lake, which is a backwater lake in the vicinity of Koyna Dam, constructed on River Koyna. Vasota fort Vasota Fort (also called Vyaghragad) is located in Satara district in the Indian State of Maharashtra. Vasota fort is attributed to the Kolhapur  Shilahara Raja Bhoja II (1178–1193) of Panhala. Vasota always remained with Marathas, Shirkes & Mores in 16th century & then incorporated in Swarajya  by Shivaji Maharaj in 1655 during the conquest of Javli. Shivaji Maharaj named the fort "Vyaghragad" (Vyaghra – means tiger) owing to its difficult  natural defense. After Shivaji Maharaj, the brave Maratha Bajirao Peshwa carried on the Swarajya mission of ousting the Mughal invaders from our country.  In 1818 however, British bombarded the fort with heavy artillery thereby destroying many buildings on Vasota (Chandika mandir, Daru-kothar, etc.) & looted  property worth 5 lakhs.
