We at Trek Mates India have arranged a one day Bike trek to Patta (Vishramgad) on 25th of September 2011.
Little info about Patta:
Take introduction round
Patta, the hill fort is situated in Nasik region.
The fort is situated at a height of 4562 feet above MSL (mean sea level).
The range of Sahyadri ,starting from Igatpuri is also recognized as the range of Kalsubai. Towards the western side of this range we can find forts like Alang , Madan and the Kalsubai peak. Towards the eastern side of this range the forts like Aundh ,Bitangad , Aad and Patta are situated.
There are two different routes which can lead us to the fort. One route starts from Patta wadi, which is the base village of this fort. This route is very easy and we can reach to the top early, as Patta wadi is itself situated on the plateau.
The other route to this fort is from the Ninavi village.
The Maratha army, under the leadership of Moropant pingle had conquered this fort in the year 1671 from Moghuls.The top of this fort is actually a huge plateau. The forts like Alang , Madan , Kulang , Trimbak gad and Kalsubai peak are in the vicinity of Patta. From Patta fort one can keep watch on this complete region.Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj has renamed this fort as Vishramgad.
In the year 1688 Matabarkhan had re conquered this fort.
