About the Fort

Fort Tung was built with an intention to keep watch on transport from Borghat & to protect the region of Pavan Maval. Lohagad, Visapur, Tikona & Pavan Maval can be easily located from this fort.
A small Maruti Temple from where our trek starts, a walk of around 45 minutes takes us to an intact arch which is a doorway to the fort. The fort seems like a small pinnacle after we arrive at a plateau which has a temple & a water tank. It takes around 30 minutes from here to reach the top.
