Its reflection in the water is not to be missed, as the trail takes you by the saltwater lakes edge, around the fort, and to the top. Two giant stone men, somewhat like Groot, will welcome you at the pinnacle of the fort. Get ready to meet them after a moderate climb!
About Kohoj Built during the Bhoj period, Kohoj fort now stands mostly as a historical ruin. It was one of the 23 forts surrendered by Shivaji under the Purandar Treaty that he signed with the Mughals in 1665. The Vaitarna river flows by at a distance, while the rest of the area is covered under natures green carpet during monsoons. Two huge stone structures, that roughly look like human figures, can be seen at the top as if still guarding the fort. Kohoj Fort is visible from the Mumbai-Ahmedabad highway.
