  • Pratapgadh is about 1 to 1.5 hours drive from mahabaleshwar. It's a ghat drive throughout and the road has bad patches. The final mile to pratapgadh is narrow, bad condition. The parking is limited so...  more »

  • Great place to visit. Do visit in rainy and winter season. In rainy season you will find lots of waterfalls which are to amazing. To good natrual views. Must visit
  • Historical place. Old fort of King of Maratha Empire chatrapati Shivajiraje. Lovely view of mountains, valleys from top of fort. Shops, restaurants available at fort. Clean and well maintained fort. Must visit.
  • If you are visiting Mahabaleshwar you must visit this fort. One of the most important fort during the reign of Shivaji Maharaj. Reason I guess is it's strategic location. It's architecture make's you think about the engineering technology of that time. It was sad to see the "renovation work" which I guess was there from many months. There were many places which were not accessible.Guides are available. The full potential of the fort is not maintained.
  • Best place for Shivaji Maharaj lovers.... Not much to climb.... Awesome food too
  • Historical place - Chatrapati Shivaji maharaj killed Afzal khan .
