TUNGI.

Tungi fort, in the Karjat village of Khandas, twelve miles east of Neral station, stands on the top of a peculiar conical hill 2019 feet high. It can be seen from the railway line near Neral, jutting out of the plain below the cliff of Bhimashankar. The Bhimashankar pass runs up the side of Tungi hill for 1200 or 1500 feet. The east of the hill consists of large masses of trap rock, and forms the fort which would not deserve the name but for its natural strength. [Mr. W. B. Mulock, C.S.]
