Here’s the detailed information about how to reach there.
To reach Tungwadi, which is the base village for Tung Fort, you will have to get to Lonavala first via train, bus, or a private vehicle. From Lonavala, reaching Tung fort using public transport is a bit challenging as there is no direct transport available to the fort. You can catch a bus going from Lonavala toward Aamby Valley and get down at Ghusalkhamb village. From Ghusalkhamb village, you will have to walk all the way to Tungwadi, which will take you around 1.5 hours (8 km) to reach.
The cheapest and the convenient way to reach the Tung fort is via railways. The nearest rail-head to Tung Fort is Lonavala Railway Station (22 km) which is well connected to other parts of the country.
Both Lonavala and Tungawadi do not have an airport for their own. So, Lohegaon Airport serves as the nearest airport, which is around 75 km away.
Well, pack your bags! It’s time for some adventure.
