Information About Ajoba (4511 ft)

Ajoba is one of the highest peaks in Sahyadris. There is a Valmiki Ashram at half way to the fort. A small water stream provides us with pure water. The way beyond Ashram leads to a rivulet, crossing which we can reach the cave of 'LUV-KUSH'. To reach this spot we have to ascend the way of waterfall for one and half hour. Above this cave there is a precipice called 'Cradle of Sitamai'. In the cave there are the carved "Padukas" or the footprints of Luv and Kush. This precipice is a real challenge for trekkers. The ashram is a sacred place and people from all over Maharashtra come here. There are some carved stones near the ashram, on which some carved idols depict some story.

For any further queries please do write / call us on the below mentioned contact details.

Thanks & Regards,
