Kamandurg Trek, Vasai (2 July 2017)

Kamandurg stands tall and proud to be the second highest fort in Thane district and still has some signs of the ancient times. This fort is special in its own way by having a gradual steep climb of about 2.30 hrs through dense forest, rock cut steps but in spite of that is rarely visited. Kamandurg played an important role during the battle of Vasai and the main aim it was built for was to keep an eye on the trade carried through Ulhas river. (source)
