Overview:

Close to Karjat Chowk Phata, Sondai is not a popular fort. Karjat train station is located nine kilometers away from Sondai Fort Trek. Morbe Dam, Prabalgad, Irshalgad, Rajmachi, Songiri forts, Karnala Fort as well as The Matheran mountain range are all visible from this location. In order to guard the trade route, Sondai Fort Karjat was utilized as an observation tower. The Sondai Fort’s two villages of base include Sondewadi along with Wavarle. 

The town of Sondewadi is situated at about a quarter of the top that is the Fort. On the topmost point which is where a Statue of Sondai Devi is situated in the middle, there are two reservoirs of water and steps made from rocks. Two more water cisterns that have potable water are also on the way. Waverle is another town where access to Fort is difficult due to the large woods. A ladder made of iron, Sondai hike, has been built. It makes the climb up to the top to look for Sondai Devi temple’s blessing safer for pilgrims and hikers alike.

EXTRA Information: 

The Sondai hike can be a bit challenging. Sondai’s main village is Sondewadi located in the Karjat region. Sondai Fort may be climbed in just 2 hours. It is believed that the Sondai Fort was created as guard towers to monitor the surrounding areas. The place of the Temple that is dedicated to the Goddess of Sondai near the summit of the mountain gave Sondai Fort its title. Since the temple is not a structure the tree over is considered to be its wall.

The Sondai Fort walk is a moderate hill fort walk that is mostly a towering watchtower which is situated at 360 meters. Sondewadi and Waverly, two villages are found close to the fort. The village of Sondewadi is just half a mile away from the Fort. Its Morba Dam, Prabalgad, Songiri, Rajmachi, and Irshal forts along with The Matheran mountain range, can all be observed from the top at the top of Sondai Fort. The fort is home to 4 water reservoirs that provide drinking water. On the top of the fort there’s also an image of Sondai Devi, and the steps to reach it are made from stone. To facilitate the climb they have built two ladders. The first ladder takes you to two cisterns. The second one leads straight towards the summit.

THE TRAIL-

 Sondai Fort walk is a moderately challenging trail that takes about 1 hour and a half to finish. In the monsoon season the walk becomes slightly more difficult as the steps of the rock become slick. The fort can be reached via two routes. One route from Sondewadi is preferable since the other from Waverly is a more difficult route due to the dense forest.

WHAT TO DO

 If you are driving by vehicle from Mumbai to Pune, you must use the Sion-Panvel Freeway, as well as the Eastern Express Highway. Use the Mumbai-Pune Freeway to get from Pune to Khopoli Then, take the Khopoli-Karjat highway until Talabani. Trains are more convenient since direct trains operate between Mumbai or Pune up to Karjat. For a trip to Sondewadi’s home village, one can use a seven-seater rickshaw known as the tumtum, or an ST bus.
