Sondai is located between Karjat and Chowk highway and it offers a beautiful view of Morbe Dam, Prabalgad, Irshalgad, Rajmachi, Songiri forts and Matheran mountain range. This was used as a watch tower. The base village of Sondewadi stands on a considerable height. The route is easy and it takes approx 1.5 hrs to reach the top. In monsoon, a couple of rocks on the way become slippery. There are 2 water cisterns on machi (at the base of the pinnacle) and steps are carved out of rocks to go on the topmost point where an idol of Sondai Devi stands. Two more water cisterns are on the way and have potable water. Two missing steps in the rock makes one climb a small patch of 15 feet but proper hand holds and foot steps are available and that makes it easy even in monsoon. Wavarle is another village from where a bit of a difficult approach to the fort passes through the dense forest. Overall it’s an ideal one day hike in monsoon for new comers in the trekking field.
