Jungle Lore trek to Fort Sagargad 12th July 2009

We have received an overwhelming response to our monsoon treks
this season. Since we had limitations in accommodating more than 27
people for Dabhosa Waterfall trail , and given the keen interest shown by so many people, we are pleased to announce another Trek to Fort Sagargad on 12th July 2009 ( Sunday ).

As monsoon sets in, young shoots begin to appear and brightly colored flowers adorn the green carpet. The freshwater crabs and frogs awaken from their long, deep slumber and scramble around; insects hop and buss around from one branch to another; birds chirp loudly and dance about to attract mates; all this is the celebration of the monsoon.

If the, the cloudy days, the lush green hills, the gushing streams, the cascading waterfalls, the misty mountain tops, entice and inspire you we have a perfect respite for you. Away from the maddening city crowds and the concrete jungle and yet not too far away, Jungle Lore welcomes you to for a one day trek to Fort Sagargad to get you back in time and one with nature, and for some to see your tie-clad colleagues pushed to the edge!

About the Fort

Sagargad is situated near Alibag, on Mumbai-Alibag road & at a distance of 8 km before Alibag. There are two routes that lead to the top of the fort. One is from a village named Khandala and the other is from Vaghole. Both these villages lie on the bus-route to Alibag, from Mumbai. The route to Sagargad is a scenic one with lush green vegetation complimented by a relatively thick jungle. We would be taking the route from Khandala to reach to the top.
