Manikad Fort Details
Manikgad Fort is located near the Panvel of Raigad District. Manikgad Trek is 62 km and 116 km away from Mumbai and Pune respectively. Manikgad Trek is easy but tiresome as one has to take a complete round of the fort to enter. On reaching, you will find 2 3 water cisterns, remnants of the fort, limestone grinder, and a temple. Manikgad fort was built by Bhoj Raja before Shivaji Maharaj took this fort under the Maratha regime. In the treaty of Purandar, this Manikgad fort was handed over to Mughals among many others.
Many trekkers visit this fort during monsoon as it does not exhaust them much and the surrounding is picturesque. If the weather is clear one can view Karnala, Irshalgad, Prabalgad, and glimpses of Kalavantin Durg.
