Kothaligad is a small funnel fort near Karjat (Maharashtra). The fort is also called "Peth Fort" because of its vicinity to Peth village. Unlike other funnel hill forts, the pinnacle or the funnel is carved from the inside, forming a circular staircase that reaches the top. Even though the view from the top of the pinnacle is superlative, yet this unique and awe-inspiring engineering feat deserves a visit.
Kothaligad is accessible via an moderate 5.6 kilometre / 3 hour trek starting from the road head at Ambivali village. A dirt road connects Peth village to Ambivali and this makes Peth village accessible with a motorcycle or with a four wheel drive vehicle. However, we recommend that you park at Ambivali and walk to Kothaligad, because there are some stellar view points along the way.
