Jangli Jaigad
Fascinating Spots :

      This fort was built on the mountain range which is broken from the main Sahyadri hills. The access is from Koynanagar side towards Konkan region from where the fort’s devastated entrance is located and hidden in trees. It can be identified by its stone built structure. While going to the fort we have to circumvent two rock pinnacles which are referred as “Deepmaal” by the locals. As we move ahead from these pinnacles there is a temple and an idol of a Goddess both of them are now in ruins. To the edge of the fort a Saffron flag is mounted. To the right side below we can see Kolkewadi dam and Kolkewadi fort next to it. To the front the town of Chiplun and Vasihthi creek can be seen. In clear weather traces of the Arabian Sea can also be visible. To the left lower side there is Kumbharli ghat. The entire fort can be visited in 30 minutes.
Ways To Reach :
      Koynanagar village is 43 kms from Chiplun on Chiplun-Patan-Karad route. Navja village is 11 kms from Koynanagar from where S.T. buses can be available to reach. 500 mts on the road towards Panchdhara tunnel there is a check post. After crossing this check post at about 500 mts there is a small unpaved road to the left approaching the hill. One can reach up to here with one’s own private vehicle. The trail starts from here which passes through dense forest cover. After a 30 minute walk we come to a stream. Water can be available here till the month of February. In further 15 minutes we cross over the main Sahyadri hill range and reach the Konkan side. Here in the front we can see the hill range on which the fort is built. It takes 30 minutes from here to reach the fort edge.

      Available in Koynanagar village or the local school in Navja village.
Food Facility :
      Available in Koynanagar.
Drinking Water Facility :

Time To Reach :

Notes :
      1) Hre a local guide from Navja village as the forest officers stationed at the check post won’t allow otherwise. It will also help to navigate easily in the dense forest area.

2) There is no route to descend in the Konkan region. Thus the ascend route is the same for descend.
