Ajoba Hills Trek, Sitamai Palna, Dehene, Maharashtra

by - January 17, 2021

 This is Sitamai Cha Palna trek in Ajoba Hills. The real Ajoba lies at 1100m whereas the Luv Kush caves are at 700m. Ajoba is also known as Ajaparvat.


Ajobagad is a fort in the state of Maharashtra , India .

Grandfather's hill in the middle of Ratangad and Harishchandragad in the Balaghat range looks like an ancient man. The 3,000 feet high wall of this fort is a challenge and a unique goal for the climbers. 


According to mythology, Valmiki wrote the Ramayana while sitting on this fort . It was on this fort that Sitamai gave birth to Love and Kush . Love and Kush used to call Valmiki 'Grandfather', hence the name 'Ajobagad'. There is an ashram and samadhi of Valmiki on the fort.

The first way is to reach the ashram of Valmiki sage in about half an hour. Since there is no way to get to the top of the fort from the ashram of Valmiki sage, you have to stay at the ashram. There is a hut on the fort. There is a spring nearby. If there is a stay program, you have to arrange the meal from home. If you go up the waterfall from the ashram, you will find a cave at the top after about an hour and a half. Here Lovekusha's shoes are carved in the rock. There is also a water tank on the left. Iron ladders have also been installed to reach the cave. This is the way to return to the ashram. Thus, for those coming from Mumbai, grandfather's fort is a scenic fort. Leaving two to three water tanks at the top of the fort is nothing special to see. Many Durgavirs trek for 4 to 5 days from Ratangad - Grandfather's Fort - Harishchandragad.

From Mumbai to Asangaon Railway Station:

The easiest way to reach the fort is to reach Asangaon railway station from Mumbai.


From here to Shahapur by rickshaw or ST. From here in the morning by ST or jeep via Dolkhamb-Sakurli to reach the village 'Dehane'. There is a plateau in the middle of the village. The plateau is divided into three parts. One of these bullock carts leads straight to the ashram of Valmiki sage. The other way goes to the hill of Katrabai and further to the village of 'Kumshet'. The third way goes to the forest. It is better not to go this way.
