My TripAdvisor Review No.208: Tung Fort, near Lonavala.

“Small Fort but with a Steep Ascent.”
4 of 5 bubblesReviewed 2 days agoNEW
Tung Fort is about 25 km from Lonavala. The base of the ascent starts just about 2 km before reaching Club Mahindra Resort at Lake Pavana. The climb is not recommended for the faint hearted.

There is a parking area near the base of the hill on which the fort is situated. There is a small Hanuman Temple nearby at the base. The road leading up to it is very narrow.

After parking your vehicle at the base there is no other option but to climb it on foot. The initial ascent is very steep and slippery because of loose rubble and rocks. After the initial ascent the climb becomes easier and one can accomplish the trek in an hour. Be sure to wear your hiking shoes and carry a water bottle.

The view from the top is indeed mesmerising with the Lake Pavana in the foreground and the Lohagad, Visapur, Tikona and Koraigad forts visible in the surrounding hills. It is well worth the climb.

There are very few eating joints nearby, but we managed to find a small dhaba by the name of ‘Holiday Garden Dhaba’ where we got some delicious ‘kande pohe’.
