Korigad Trek, Pune Overview

Korigad is a hill fort in Maharashtra. Situated in the district of Pune, the fort rises to a height of about 2800 feet from the ground.

Though not much of the fortifications are intact, the entire wall of the fort is completely intact. One can choose to walk along its 2 kilometres long perimeter. There are caves and cisterns of water within the fort. There are two expansive lakes atop the citadel, and a temple dedicated to the patron deity of the fort, Koraidevi. A large cannon rests adjacent to this temple. There are other cannons atop the fort as well. Temples of Shiva and Vishnu can be found at the top. The top of the fort presents a very commanding view of the Amby valley city developed by Sahara along with Tung and Tikona to one side.

More on Korigad Trek


Food is available in the base village of Shahpur. It is advisable to take a light meal before the beginning of the trek as the trek is relatively short.

There are two lakes at the top of the fort with enough water in them except during the summer season. We advise you to carry your own water supply with you.

There are caves halfway to the top of the fort which are very much inhabitable. The Koraidevi temple atop the citadel can accommodate around 10 people at a time.

There are two routes to reach the top of the fort. The first one follows the staircase route. Once we start walking from the base village towards the fort, we have to walk through dense jungles for first 15 minutes of the trail. We then reach the steps which terminate at the top of the fort towards the end of the climb. There are around 100 odd stairs during the course of the climb. The second route involves climbing short steps carved out of large rocks, which makes this trail tricky. It is advisable to follow the first route, owing to the convenience assosciated with it.

Easy to Medium

Sahara Amby Valley city situated just at the base of the fort can be visited along with the trek.

  • Rail: There are as many as 17 local trains plying on a daily basis from Pune to the hill station of Lonavla. Besides, a number of trains plying between the Mumbai-Kalyan route also halt at this station, thereby making the commute easier.

  • Road: NH 4 connects Pune and Lonavla via the Bushi Dam. In addition, local transportation like a jeep or a cab can be arranged from Lonavla to the base village.
