The Karnala Fort

Deepak Amembal

Barely sixty kilometers from Mumbai is an amazing spot, which is a haven for bird watchers, picnickers, rock climbers, weekend hikers and Fort spotters.
Karnala is dominated by a fort, which rises up from the sanctuary at its base.
The whole area is lush green and rich with natural habitation of various birds like Red Vented, Bulbul, Horn Bill, Myna, Owl, Robin McPie and many others.

The ancient fort is at an altitude of 1560ft. The fort has a Pinnacle on the top of it, which resembles a ‘Thumb’. The Pinnacle is 125ft in height and a popular climbing site for professional rock-climbers.

Karnala’s forest was declared a Bird Sanctuary in 1962 .

The latest wildlife census proved the sanctuary to be a refuge for more than 140 species of resident and over 40 migratory bird species.
