Vasota Fort, located in Satara, is approximately 256 km from Mumbai and is often preferred by trekkers from all across the state. Shivaji Maharaj had also named it Vyaghragad (Vyaghra means "tiger" in Sanskrit), owing to its difficult natural defence. However, in 1818, Britishers bombarded the fort with heavy artillery, thereby making it one of the most fascinating jungle treks in Maharashtra. Located deep within the Koyna Wildlife Sanctuary, the only way to reach the base of Vasota is by boat from Tapola or Bamnoli.
