Sondai is not a popular or unknown fort, stands approx 6 kms of Karjat overlooking the Karjat-Chauk highway and offers a beautiful view of Morbe Dam, Prabalgad, Irshal, Rajmachi, Songiri forts, and Matheran mountain range. This was used as a watchtower. The base village of Sondewadi stands on a considerable height. There are 2 water cisterns on Machi (at the base of the pinnacle) and steps are carved out of rocks to go on the topmost point where an idol of Sondai Devi stands. Two more water cisterns are on the way and have potable water. Two missing steps in the rock make one to climb a small patch of 15 feet but proper handholds and footsteps are available and that makes it easy even in monsoon. Waverly is another village from where a bit difficult approach to the fort passes through the dense forest. Overall it’s an ideal one day hike for newcomers in the trekking field.
