Kohoj fort is located near Manor, on the Mumbai Ahmedabad highway NH8. It provides a nice weekend trekking destination, being a medium grade trek. The fort itself does not have too many man-made features. One distinct feature is a rampart that is now weather-worn into a shape that resembles a man’s torso with a head.
Three of us – myself, Sameer and Bhavik set off on our Bullets early in the morning on 7th October 2012. The early morning ride down Western Express Highway was a great experience, except for a few patches of bad road near the Dahisar toll point. At Manor, we stopped for a quick breakfast of idlis, and then turned off the highway towards Wada.
We then rode back to Mumbai uneventfully, tired but quite pleased with ourselves. A final stop for kheema pav at Mira Road was inevitable, before we raced back on the Western Express Highway back home.
What a great way to celebrate my birthday!
