  • My personal experience with research paper writing services was highly positive. I sent a request to ⇒ www.HelpWriting.net ⇐ and found a writer within a few minutes. Because I had to move house and I literally didn’t have any time to sit on a computer for many hours every evening. Thankfully, the writer I chose followed my instructions to the letter. I know we can all write essays ourselves. For those in the same situation I was in, I recommend ⇒ www.HelpWriting.net ⇐.

  2. 2. Tikona<br />Tikona fort, also known as Vitandgad, is one of the easier forts to climb and would be a good introductory, <br />yet interesting trek. The fort is close to Pavana Dam. The fort is on top of a ~3500 foot hill and offers <br />unhindered views of the entire region including the forts of Tung, Lohagad and Visapur. <br />The mountains on Deccan plateau in the vicinity of BorGhat have many ancient caves like Karle,<br />Bhaje, Bedse, Bhandara and Shelarwadi. The forts of Lohgad, Visapur, Tung and Tikona were<br />built in order to defend these caves. This region also has a number of Ghat‐routes connecting<br />the ports on the western coast to the cities located on the Deccan plateau. These forts served as<br />protectors of these important trade routes of ancient India. As the caves found in this area<br />belong to the Buddhist and Heenyana era, it is believed that these forts must have been built<br />around 800 to 1000 AD.<br />Not much is known about the history of this fort. Malik Ahmed Nizamshah of the Nizam dynasty<br />conquered it in 1585 and thus it was made part of the Nizam territory. In 1657 king Shivaji<br />conquered Tikona along with the forts of Mahuli, Lohgad, Visapur, Songad, Tala and Karnala.<br />Thus, all areas of Konkan, which earlier belonged to the Nizam's territory, came under king<br />Shivaji’s control. This fort was strategically very important to keep a watch on the entire region<br />of PaunaMawal. In 1660, NetajiPalkar was assigned the task of ensuring security of fort Tikona.<br />This fort was surrendered to the Mughal warrior Kubadkhan, who had attacked the region<br />together with Halalkhan and others. However, the Marathas later recaptured the fort.<br />In 1682, king Sambhaji met with Aurangzeb's son Akbar. After this meeting, Akbar was offered to<br />stay at fort Tikona, however was sent later to Jaitapur since the climate here didn't suit him. A<br />small battle was fought with the British on Tikona in year 1818 and the fort was damaged to a<br />great extent. Till date the fort of Tikona lies in the form of ruins.<br />

  7. 7. How to reach TOP<br />There is 2 paths to ascend this small fort from two villages at nearest base from TikonaPeth and Javan. <br /> We are going from TikonaPeth.<br />Take a left (to Pavan Nagar) from a police post after kamshet tunnel to your left towards pune on mumbai-pune expressway, go 7.7kms ahead take left, then 5.3kms take left and reach the base village called TikonaPeth. The climb has two routes to reach top one (The 2 of 3 corners of the fort) from the jungle and second from the clif aside…which is risky in monsoon. Take the jungle route to climb and other to descent.<br />

  10. 10. The final stretch called “Shivaji Trail” has recently been restored and hand railings have been added on the steep sections. The steps are split into 2 sections. There is a viewpoint at the end of the first stretch. If you wander to the sides, you can see small caves which are again good photo spots with Tung Fort in the background.<br />
