  • Requires lot of time to reach fort. Easy trek but has to walk more. You will have very awesome experience once reach top. Best in rainy season
  • Great but difficult hike. There are rocks that need to be climbed. The elevation increases by about 1800 feet over the course of the hike. Highly suggested that you carry a water pouch with 3-4 liters of water. To get a sunrise view, it is recommended to camp there the previous night. All in all amazing views and a great workout for the day!
  • Total fun. But keep in mind it is hard track so watch out people who talking there families with them. Also food up there little costly. best fun place for night out if anyone is looking.
  • Great and difficult trekking with stone climbing. Once you reach, there is complete satisfaction with nature beauty view in all directions. Adventurous visit with friends. Start trekking early and return before sunset. Very hard to trek in monsoon season. Overall 3 hrs trek one way and don`t forgot to carry water.
  • You should visit this place at least once in your life. It was really an amazing experience. Rajgad is little bit difficult for trekking, but it is really interesting. Carry water bottles, energy drinks and some snacks with you while trekking.
