We have explored the Songiri fort.There are not much fort structure at the top of Songiri Fort. After exploring Songiri fort we finished our lunch. We have taken parcel from Karjat market. After finishing lunch we relaxed for 1 hour. Then we started descending which will be taking us towards Palasdari railway station. Descending is quite risky. We have lost the way when descending. After 1 hour we have found the right way to descend from the fort. It is advised to start your trek early in the morning. Even If you lost the way you will be having enough time to find the right way. If you hire some guide from palasdari village it will be best so there will be no chances of losting the right way.
