Trek to Asava (Asawa) fort – guarding Palghar and Dahanu

Asava fort (आसावा गड़) is located in Palghar on a hill about 1070 feet high. Palghar has eight forts divided into two groups – five sea forts that are along the coast to the west, and three hill forts on the sub-range of the Sahyadris to its east.

Asava fort is located at the north tip of this sub-range, with Tandulwadi fort at the southern tip and Kaldurg fort approximately in the center, next to the Chahad pass through which the Palghar-Manor road runs.

I was keen to explore Asava for I had already visited Tandulwadi and Kaldurg. I got the opportunity on one weekend in August 2016.
