Takmak fort about 60 km towards the north of Mumbai is a lesser known but extremely enjoyable trekking getaway.
The fort is naturally separated from main hill and surrounded by dense forest. It was built in the 12th century to safeguard the business route by keeping a watch on the activities which enrouted from Mahim (Mahakawati).
The fort was built by King Bheemdev and was conquered by the Sultans. Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj might have won this fort along with Kohaj & Asheri. The fort also went under Portuguese supervision. Takmak fort received importance after Chimaji Appa’s Vasai campaign. Maratha warrior won Takmak fort in 1732 from Portuguese. But as per the agreement between Maratha & Portuguese the fort went into Portuguese custody.
With Trailblazers experts, come and explore the majestic hills and surrounding fascinating villages, immerse in nature and get a much needed detoxification.
