Murud and Divegar are two destinations worth visiting in your Kokan Tour. These two places are located along the Maharashtra Coastline.
By road the distance between these two places is around 60km. This distance can be curtailed to only 20 km if you take a ferry.

Murud Janjira fort is around 160km from Pune and Mumbai is base to one of the strongest Sea fort of yester years. Situated on a rock of oval shape near the port town of Murud, Janjira is a corruption of the Arabic word Jazira for island. The fort is approached by sailboats from Rajapuri jetty. The main gate of the fort faces Rajapuri on the shore and can be seen only when one is about 40 feet away from it.

Diveagar situated around 160km from Pune provides a great weekend destination for the tourists who wish to enjoy beaches away. Diveagar is around 170km from Mumbai so being in the vicinity of two major cities Diveagar has a lot to offer. Diveagar is situated on the Arabian Sea. The place with a beach very wide and clean is blessed with intense natural beauty, the tender sands below feet, coconut tree cultivations. I visited Diveagar on 17th January as the second leg on my Kokan Tour after Harihareshwar.

Lohagad Fort is one of the twin fort that stands side by side. The other fort is Visapur fort. I visited this fort in Feb 2014. Lohagad fort is of easy grade as the condition stairs to the top is good. The vehicle reaches till the base of the fort where the stairs start after walking a bit on flat muddy area. While if you wish to have some adventure Visapur is where you should set your target.
