Pandavgad & the Vairatgad forts 19th 20th July 08

This month monsoon trek destination is the Pandavgad & the Vairatgad forts. Located in the Wai region, these forts lie in the Shambhu Mahadeo range. They were constructed by the King Bhoj-II of the Shilahar dynasty during 1178-1207AD.
Though this region is covered by sugarcane fields all around along with the still waters of Dhom dam, we hope that Mother Nature showers her rainfall blessings on us!
