  • My all time fav place to go for a good climb and neat view! Carry lots of water for the climb and wear sun protective gear, hats and sunscreen because there are not many big trees to rest in shade. 
  • Tikona is a short and sweet trek and highly recommended for beginners. The road to the base of the fort passes along Pawna Lake and is beautiful. There are quite a few camp sites at the base village, ...  more »

  • TIkona or VITANDGAD is a fort that resembles the shape of a triangle. Good place for one day hiking. The terrain is quite easy. Good arrangements have been made for parking of 2 and 4 wheelers. Best experience was travelling from paud to tikona on bike enjoying the cold and the scenic beauty on both sides of the road. Be aware of monkeys.

  • . In 1657, Shivaji Maharajbrought the whole of Konkan, which had been Nizam territory, under his control when he conquered Tikona along with the forts of Karnala, Lohgad, Mahuli, Songad, Tala, and Visapur. This fort was a strategic nexus: the centre of control for the entire Pawana Mawal region. In 1660, Dhamale family, the Deshmukhs from Maval region were charged with ensuring the security of fort Tikona. Jaysingh invaded the region in 1665 and attacked the local villages but the forts held out. Tikona fort was surrendered to the Mughal warrior Kubadkhan, who had attacked the region together with Halal Khan and others, according to the Treaty of Purandarsigned on 12 June 1665. Kubad Khan took over the fort on 18 June but it was later recaptured by the Marathas
  • Nice place. Bit challenging in rainy season. thumbs up for camping. Road is enough wide for 4 wheeler. Go & Njy.
  • The fort climbing was nice as they are very slippery but the experience was good. The top of the fort is really hard to climb. The stairs are slippery but you can climb on it with the help of wires. Many womens are there to sell Hot bhajji's with chai. In Rainy Season, the cloudy view is a must watch. Beware of Monkeys if you are eating something. Dogs are harmless. There is a chor darwaza but the way to go is muddy. Top view is just like being in heavens (Top of the world).
