Tikona is a small outpost fort located in the Maval region of the Pune district in Maharashtra, India. This fort is famous with first timers in trekking as it has a simple climb and is quite close to Pune city. This fort is usually scaled with Tung another outpost for located nearby. In fact, Tung and Tikona are separated just by the backwaters of the Pavana dam.
