User Experience

There are no remains of forts seen at Parvatgad. It is the last fort on the range that runs to the East of Kalsubai. On the top are the sparse remains of the built structures and a lake. The spread at the top is large. It resembles Dehergad from the South. After reaching the base village one can see the twin forts standing tall together. The fort at the East is Songad and the one at the West is Parvatgad. The region is sparsely covered with trees. The forest department has taken an initiative to develop it. The climb is slippery but very easy. Parvatgad on the South resembles Rajdher with its vertical rock faces. On the top, towards the West is a lake built in the historic times. Though the lake is covered with mud during the ages, its masonry edges can be clearly seen. Going ahead are two water tanks carved out of rocks. There are remains of the structures built centuries ago. The surrounding region can be peacefully viewed from the top. The view of Songad it offers is satisfying. Both Parvatgad and Songad can be done in a day’s trek.

Do Not Miss

• Fortifi cation (Tatbandi) and bastion (buruj) on three side around the fort. • View of Songad on East side. • Lake on East side. • Historical remains of old structures. • Rock cut water tanks.
