WALK IN THE WILDERNESS - MONSOON TREK TO TUNG FORT

The charm of the first rains is unmatched with the aroma of the wet earth filling the air and little green leaves/grass peeking out from the earth. The first rains also dispel the heat of summer and bring much needed relief to the parched lands.

 

Our plan is to head out a relatively less frequented fort of Tung or Kathingad to try and catch the first onslaught of the rains.

 

The fort of Tung is located at an altitude a little higher than Lonavala and offers one a commanding view of the Backwaters of the Pawna Dam. The easy trek up the fort along with its beautiful location make it and enjoyable hike for Adults and Children​ alike.

 

Join Canvas N Chrome as we head off into the wilderness not too far away from the Hill station of Lonavala.

  • Vehicle will depart from Borivali National Park @ 05.00hrs

  • Reach Tungvadi - The base of the fort by 09.00hrs

  • Instructions & Safety Briefing (~0.5hrs)

  • Easy Trek/Hike from Base to Tung Fort Top (~1.5hrs)

  • Descend back down in time for late lunch

  • Depart for Mumbai - Borivali via the same route taken in the morning

  • Arrive in Borivali by 21.00hrs (Subjective)​

 Important Notes:

 

  • This Trek is doable by all including First Time Trekkers/Hikers as well as Children of age group 10 years & above

  • The Hike/Trek is graded as Easy because of an easy trail which leads up to the fort; Endurance grade is Easy as it takes not more than 1.5hrs to reach the top.

  • Wearing full clothes (Track pants + Full sleeve Shirt/Tshirt) is advisable – Prevents cuts & bruises while walking through the forest & also protects from insect bites.

  • Jeans can get uncomfortable on treks & also tend to soak & retain water if it rains; avoid as far as possible

  • Trekking/Sports shoes advisable – Covered feet provide safety from stubbing your toes on rocks, etc and also from insect bite.

  • Extra Floaters/Footwear advisable – Sports shoes tend to open up/tear during treks through rain & having an extra pair of floaters helps.

  • A sturdy & comfortable haversack/backpack advisable – Helps one balance better, keeps the hands free, & needless to add helps keep all your belongings safe.

  • Packing of all essentials in polythene advisable – To protect from getting wet in the rain.

  • A good torch is always a recommended companion on any trek.

  • 2 liters of water is compulsory.

 

Our Belief System:

  • Nature along with Fresh Air & Serenity are intoxicating enough to most city dwellers seeking a short sabbatical from the hectic city life; Kindly refrain from consuming Alcohol & other intoxicants while on the trip.

  • If lighting up a smoke is something that one cannot do without; we would request you to ask for permission and move away from the group to reduce passive smoking for the non-smokers.

  • Loud Music from Portable Bluetooth Speakers/Phones does not fit in with our idea of fun on a Trek/Trip. If one cannot do without a dose of music, we strongly recommend the use of headphones.

  • Our Experienced Leaders have the best interests & safety of each guest & the group as a whole in mind. Kindly refrain from questioning the veracity of his/her decisions.

  • All our Trek/Trips are planned & executed with Safety being the top most priority; However the onus of our own safety lies with each one of us.

  • Wearing of expensive jewellery while on Treks/Trips is best avoided.

  • And last but definitely not the least, Refrain from Littering!
