Overview

Bhivgad Fort Trek lies in Karjat in the Raigad region. It is a medium grade trek. This trek is also known Bhimgad fort trek or Bheemgad fort trek. The fort does not have much historical significance documented and hence is not visited by many despite being close to Pune.

 

History

Not much is known about the history of the Bhivgad Fort Trek. It seems that the fort was used as a strategic watch tower. It is believed to be built during the Satvahana period.

The Bhimgad fort is spread north-south. It lies at an altitude of 850ft above the sea level. The total area on the top of the fort is about 4 acres.

While trekking the fort from the Gaurkamat village, there are steps carved into the stone. It seems likely that this was the main entrance for the fort. To the right of this, two caves are carved on the upper part of the ridge. A frame has been carved on the outer wall of the cave. There is a sculpture of a human and an animal carved outside the cave. The second cave is partially excavated.
