Vasota is located near a village called Bamnoli in Satara district near backwaters of Koyna dam. Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj renamed it as ‘Vyaghra Gad‘, because it resembled in a shape of a Tiger. Vasota falls under the category of ‘Vana Durg‘. It was a watchtower and had facilities for imprisonment during Maratha Empire. The fort has remnants such as lime-crusher, Hanuman Temple etc.

The fort had natural defense for impregnability. On one side was a huge lake and on the other a steep vertical rock cliff, thus making it a must do adventure for beginner trekkers and wildlife, nature lovers.
