Location Details

Budhya is a peak and not a fort, so there is no historical reference to this peak in the battle times. It has not witnessed any event of victory or defeat.
User Experience

Budhya mountain can be noticed due to its peculiar shape it gets from the steeply falling ridge. A small river has to be crossed near Waaki village in order to reach the hill. This adds to the excursion making it completely picture perfect. The pathway from the village takes one directly till the foothills. One has to follow the steep ridge in order to reach the top. The climb is easy but slippery. While climbing, at the left is a roofless temple of Goddess. Being a peak, the view Budhya offers is simply fascinating. To the East is the Kavnai fort which became a part of the Swarajya after the coronation ceremony of Chattrapati Shivaji Maharaj. The calm and serene Tringalwadi can be seen towards the west. To the North are the crystal clear waters of Vaitarna dam, turning the complete atmosphere pleasant. To the South is the spread of Igatpuri village on the Nashik – Mumbai route. The ghats of Igatpuri provide breathtaking valleys and water falls at number of places making the place nothing lessthan a dreamland.
