One of the best trek in the region, Easy to Moderate grade and Fantastic Panoramic view from top... There are couple of patches which needs extra care otherwise it is a Simple trek. 3/4 Day is good enough to complete this trek from Pune. Would suggest a early morning start to have a great view from the top. There is ample parking available at the base village near Hanuman Temple.There is no food and water availability on the top so carry enough stuffs with you Please avoid Trek during extreme summer .

This place is easily reachable by small trek. It takes about 2 hours to reach the top. The way to the fort is easy. Once on the top of Tunga fort, the views of the lake are mesmerizing. Fresh air along with rains make this place must visit during rains.

We reached this fort fairly easily but the road around The Machan hotel is bad. There is a parking area by a temple and from there the fort is visible directly above you on the cliff top. The hike doesn't take very long but is a lot of climbing straight up the rocks. We went in December when it is dry and not slippery. The top had great views of the lake and the surroundings. A fun quick trip.

A relatively easy trek for beginners and once a top the views of the Pavana lake and surrounding areas is mesmerising. one can go any time of the year, but Monsoon is the best time to trek.

Had been to the vicinity of Tungi Fort recently. For the best view, closest and prolonged, of this awesome fort, stay at Club Mahindra , Pawne Resort. Pawne lake on one side of the Resort provide you a soothing view , while Tungi Fort on the other side a magnificent one. Viewing the morning mist moving across the majestic fort is an exhilarating experience.
Reaching the site from Mumbai is easy, Mumbai- Pune Express highway will take you to Lonavala Town, take right turn at the Kumar Resort Junctionn and proceed towards the Bushi dam , cross the Indian Navy establishment , go up the hill towards Ambi Valley. On reaching Cloud 9 Resort, take a left turn, few meters ahead take another left turn and proceed straight for another 10 Kms to reach Club Mahindra , Tungi Resort. Bang opposite , you will see the Tungi Fort.The last 10 Kms is tough since the road condition is pretty bad. You can reach Tungi in 90 minutes from Panvel and the drive is one of the best you must have experienced except for the last 10 kms.
Attempt to go up the fort if you are fit mentally and physically since the trail towards the top is narrow. on your way to the top, you are rewarded by the panoramic view of the the Pawne lake.
Stay at the club Mahindra Resort add to the excitement. Select a room on the first floor facing the lake, enjoy the Sunrise . Good food, pleasant stay, ambience enriched by Tungi Fort and Pawne lake, you are sure to have a memorable outing.

Tunga trek one of the best short trek for monsoon. It is located near Pawana Dam around 60 km from Pune. the fort is conical and has steep climbs with a very narrow route on the edge of the mountain throughout. Its sharp, conical peak makes Tung Fort a prominent landmark. Fort is located close to Pawna dam hence you can see backwater from three side of fort. Not much is known about the history of this fort.

To reach at the base village of fort from Pune is Pune – Chadani Chowk – Pirangut – Paud – Take a right at Paud after Bus stand – Hadashi (No need to take Hadashi temple route) – Javan – Take a left at javan – After crossing Hilton resort, look for proper T junction (Javan to T junction distance is around 14 km) – Take a right at T junction and drive for 3 km – Take a left and park your vehicle at Maruti Temple.

There is a small temple of lord hanuman. Ample parking space is available close to temple. Route is narrow with rock steps. You can see water trench / tank backside of Ganesh temple. It not a drinking water. There is ruined part of Sadar (meeting hall or administration room) just opposite to temple. You can also see Bastion fortification. climb Bale-Killa was really difficult job. Narrow rocky path and it is exposing to valley on one side. This place is too windy so it’s better to take proper care while climbing on top of fort. There is small temple of Tungi Devi on the top of fort.

View of Pawna Dam, Lohagad, Visapur and Tikona fort is simply breathtaking in monsoon.
