Lohagad Fort, Khandala
Categories: Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
A marvel of military architecture, Lohagad Fort stands at 1,033 m (3,389 ft) in the Sahyadris range, overlooking lush terraced valleys. One of the finest in the Maratha empire, this multi-access 17th-century stone fort features four large gates still in good condition. A particularly favorite among hikers, the simple and easy route here is suitable for all ages. Keep your eye out for a variety of birds and insects, as well as monkeys (who will try to grab your food). Some 8-9 km (4-5 mi) from Malavli station, a walk to the fort takes 2-3 hours. For locals, this is a popular place for picnicking in the monsoon season. See Lohagad Fort and all Lonavala has to offer by arranging your trip with our Lonavala travel itinerary planner.

It has some 400 steps.. Need Tao have proper shoes to climb since it can get slippery.. But the view from the top is amazing .. Lots of monkeys around.l.
Worst place ever to visit. Roads r f***ed. I think i might need to have a back surgery. I was so tired by the time i reached the fort, i didnt even climb it. No offense. I cannot judge the place without actually being there. But the experience was horrible.
A must visit for trekking lovers. Vinchukata view is really awesome and too much windy. Since its open fort so no place for night stay but yes you can sleep at outside snacks centre Porsche, completely safe. Pohe a must try for your breakfast.
My favourite fort. It has a very peaceful and powerful temple of lord shiva. Har Har Mahadev !!!
I wouldnt write too much about the fort and history as I think others have already well covered it. If you are coming from Pune side, there are couple interesting routes you can take which roadies would certainly appreciate. 1) Hit on old highway, about an 5-7 kms after your first toll, keep looking for kamshet-pavananagar road, cross the borr ghat , enroute visit Bedse caves and reach lohgad. 2) From chandni chowk, take the mulshi road, cross the ghotawade Phata then come to paud Phata and turn right near the market you should be on the Kolvan Road now keep going straight and you will find Pavna dam on your left go little further and you should be at Lohagad
One of the best scenic beauty which i saw in the winter morning. A must go place if you are staying around somewhere for sometime
