Kokandiva and Kavlya ghat revive the memories of the historical events took place after the assassination of Sambhaji Raje. As Mughals started lying siege to the region around Raigad, the brave widow of Sambhaji Raje, Rani Yesubai played an intellectual move to send the young Rajaram Maharaj to Pratapgad through Kavlya ghat. Maratha army fought fiercely with Mughals and led the new Maratha King, Rajaram to escape through Kavlya ghat to Jinji via Pratapgad-Vishalgad. This had manifold impact on the entire history of Maratha kingdom. Yesubai's move to send Rajaram through Kavlya ghat to safe land deprived Mughals from crushing Maratha region. Thus, Kokandiva reminds us some of the very eventful moments in the history of Maratha reign.
The trek starts from the western edge of the village passing through a very thick forest. The forest said to be infested with wild animals and many species of birds. Cave is carved in the rocks and has a rough surface. One of the water cisterns has potable water. To reach the top of the forts one needs to opt for simple rock-climbing. The rock patch to be negotiated is a bit exposed and needs to be attempted carefully. The top of the fort is very small with almost no worthwhile width. The top however, offers a beautiful view of Capital of Maratha Kingdom, Raigad. Raigad is situated at south whereas Lingana pinnacle adorns southeast vicinity. Since Kokandiva is a very tall fort in the region, one can see many hills in all directions.
