Tringalwadi fort, located in the beautiful Igatpuri taluka of Nashik district, is a hidden gem that’s waiting to be explored. It’s located on the ancient trade route passing through Thal ghat, which means it has a ton of history and stories to tell.

Plus, the fort is located near the village of Tringalwadi, which adds to the charm of the place.

To reach Tringalwadi, you can either take the route passing through Igatpuri town or take the northern exit to NH160 at Ghoti, further passing through village Balayaduri. Don’t worry, the climb is easy and takes about 30 minutes to reach the top of the fort from the village. It’s perfect for new hikers and trust us, the view from the top is worth the climb.

At the foothills of the fort, there’s a cave called Pandav Leni with a beautifully carved entrance and a stone idol of Rishabhanatha in the Garbha Gruha. The cave has a large Sabha Mandapa, which adds to the allure of the place. And if you’re feeling brave, opt for a local guide to help you navigate the fort and caves.

But wait, there’s more! This place has a breathtaking view of majestic hills, which gets more attractive with awesome greenery during the rains. However, reaching this place during the monsoons can be a challenging task due to the pathetic conditions of the single-lane road that connects this place to Igatpuri.

Pro tip: make sure to visit the Tringalwadi dam located below the fort. The scene is fantastic, and you can even see Kalsubai peak from here. If you’re feeling adventurous, there are kayaking and sailing boats of Bodh valley resorts for a fun experience.

In conclusion, Tringalwadi fort is an amazing place to visit throughout the year.
