Location Details

Koldhar has not witnessed any historical event by far. It must have been used to keep a watch on Rajdher and Indrai which were considered as important forts during those times. During Shivaji Maharaj’s reign, this fort was under the Mughal control. In June 1663, Koldhar became a Mughal property during Nizam rule. Indrai, which is at the East of Koldhar bears inscriptions about this fort in the stone carvings. In 1818 A.D., when the British Empire conquered the seven forts of the Satmala ranges, Koldher was one of them.
User Experience

Koldhar, of the Ajanta Satmala ranges, springs high up to the clouds which states its importance in being used for keeping an eye around. There are not much remains of the fort on the hill top. But the view from the top is truly mesmerizing. Towards the East, are Rajdher, Indrai, Chandwad and towards the West are Dhodap, Markandya, Rawla – Jawla, Saptashrungi hill. The North – South spread of the land merges beautifully into the sky. There are caves and water cisterns on the top of the hill. The easy climbing makes this journey an easy going one. Though, the instruments for climbing and rappelling, along with an experienced trekker are required to reach the top of the pinnacle.

Do Not Miss
