About Karnala:

Karnala is a famous bird sanctuary located on Mumbai Goa Highway. It allows a unique micro-climate in the region and the trail is easy yet rewarding. You might catch some awesome birds in action too! It also houses a small fort at the top.

Many rulers have ruled this fort from the Yadav dynasty, Tughalq, Gujurat Sultanate, Nizamshah of Ahmednagar. Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj captured this fort in 1670. There is a water cistern that provides fresh water all year long. From the top, the forts of Prabalgad, Manikgad, Haji Malang, Chanderi Fort, Matheran, Sankshi fort, Dronagiri fort, and Rajmachi are clearly visible.

17:30- We start our journey back towards Panvel in a private vehicle, tired but getting a flashback of all the memories we made and all the awe aspiring things/views we saw during the trek.
