    Karnala Fort is a hill fort in the Raigad district of Maharashtra, India, about 10 km from Panvel City. The Karnala Fort trek is considered an 'easy to moderate' trek.

    The fort may have been built before 1400 under the Devagiri Yadav (1248-1318) and Tughlaq rulers (1318-1347). Karnala was the capital of the North Konkan districts of their respective empires. It later came under the Gujarat Sultanate but was captured by Nizam Shah of Ahmednagar in 1540. The Sultans of Gujarat then requested the help of Dom Francisco de Menezes, the commanding officer of the Portuguese at Bassein. (modern-day Vasai) to win it back. He ordered his 500 soldiers to go to Karnala fort and they succeeded in capturing it. The fort remained under the control of the Gujarat Sultanate but was held by the Portuguese army.

    The Karnala Fort entry fee is Rs 30 for adults and Rs 15 for children to enter the sanctuary.

    The vastness of the park hits you slowly… SMART eco park At Panvel is a paradise at Mumbais doorstep. They have lived up to their name… it’s very smartly designed… each zone very well thought through and beautifully executed… and since it’s a eco park… everyone should visit it at least once to understand why nature and having a strong eco system is the only solution for our future generations and us… rain water harvesting, purification of water, the whole drainage of water, the variety of flora fauna that has been planted and which generates life cycles of various species is just mind boggling at the same time absolutely humbling. I was in Mumbai for 3 days and all I could hear was honking… a morning at the SMART park just rejuvenated me.
    The highlight for me was the Gaushala… the hygiene that was maintained there was commendable… inspite of so many cows… there was no stench. Was totally bowled over by the GIR COWS… and why they are one of the best species.
    I was expecting lots of mosquitoes and since it was summer crazy sun too but the thoughtful plantations has made the park nice and shady and because of the awesome maintenance of the farm there was no bad experience of mosquitoes 👍
    Beautiful cottages… hope to stay there on one of my trips to India. The food was scrumptious and absolutely mouthwatering, finger licking delicious food prepared with hygiene standards better than some of the so called fancy restaurants that I visited.
    Kudos to the whole team who have dedicated their life to this cause to make our future better. It was one of the most memorable experience… a must visit place

    I recommend you to travel with your own private vehicle. You can't rely on public transport systems ( auto ,bus,etc) . Their is a camp side near by you can enjoy camping as well.They won't allow you near the dam but , their are many beautiful locations to visit and one can feel close to nature . You should travel ones .

    This is the only auditorium in Panvel providing stage for drama and other programs. The seating arrangements, sound and lights coupled with reasonable charge attracts many arrangers. Ample parking available.

    The lake is cleaned and surrounding is renovated recently. There is no boating or other facilities offered. Only look is improved, much more needed.

    After major revamp and beautification, the 400 year old lake spread over 25 acres opened to public. But the bio dversity seemd to be threatened by artificial beautification and renovation of the natural surroundings. Changing centrally located water body transforming as a major recreational hub had de-weeding, de-silting , gut, promenade, hawker zone, landscaping furniture, parking lots, peddle boating, public toilets etc.It is famous for lotus flowers and migratory birds. Marine drive, walking tracks and parking facilities were used by locals.
