My personal Experience and Guidance for you to reach:
This Fort is my best as its only one step away from my home, when i am out of Option i go here. The hike to this Forts takes 60 min for me to reach to the top. I opt for Train going towards Dahanu and hop out at Palghar station and walk to the bus stand(pefer Public Transport) reach waghoba khind in 30 min and than keeping the hand pump in mind from were the trail starts.
The hike trail is well marked, so you won’t get lost here after a 30 to 40 min of hike I reached a plateau which is the middle point of the trail. As you proceed further you will reach a dead end from here I headed to the left route and in 20 min I reached the top. Explored the surrounding and rested their for 2 hours and proceeded back to waghobaa khind. You can check my youtube channel for video refrencce of the trek.
To sum up the cost of trek:
Dadar to Palghar return Ticket(Indian Railways)=Rs 50.
Palghar bus stand to Waghibaa Khind (State Transport Bus)=Rs 20.
Fruits Consume before starting the Trek= Rs 30.
So the total expense of the trek was Rs. 100 Only.
