Manikgad is located near Panvel of Raigad District. It is 62 kms and 116 kms away from Mumbai and Pune respectively. The trek to Manikgad is easy but tiresome as one has to take a complete round of the fort to enter. On reaching, you will find 2 – 3 water cisterns, remnants of the fort, limestone grinder and a temple. The fort was built by Bhoj Raja before Shivaji Maharaj took this fort ender the Maratha regime. In the treat of Purandar, this fort was handed over to Mughals among many others.

Many trekkers visit this fort during monsoon as it does not exhaust them much and the surrounding is picturesque. If the weather is clear one can view Karnala, Irshalgad, Prabalgad and glimpses of Kalavantin Durg.
