  • This was the capital of the Maratha Swaraj during initial period of state. Very steep ascent and escarpment on all sides provided good protection and invincibility to fort. That's why it was selected for capital. Later on capital was shifted to more safe fort - Raigad Fort. Good place for trekkers. But go prepared with sufficient water and food stuff because trek is longer one (final altitude - around 1400m) and the last part of trek is very steep.
  • Guys this place is actually heaven for trekkers & nature lover.I would give it more than 100 star if possible but here is only 5🤗. But pls remember you will cover 4500ft. (1400m) altitude so carry sufficient water & snacks(I.e. chocolate,biscuit, sprouts,fruit,juice,butter milk,dry fruits etc)and you can got water bottle only at village situated at the base of track. !! NO WATER bottle and snacks available in between the trek but there is a drinkable water pond at 500m below the top.Avoid trek in Summer's.Winter or Monsoon must be preferable.Also best place for night camping, cooking & bone fire if you can carry the stuff but again remember at last stage of trekking there are few points where even carry your own self is not an easy task...But don't afraid it's gonna be a everlasting experience
  • Rajgad Fort. We parked our bike and went for trekking. It is very high place to trek. There is Bale killa at the top of fort which is about to demolished. Some snacks like pohe - ₹30, nimbu sharbat -₹10, drinking water bottle - ₹30,etc. It almost took 3½hr to go up there and 2 hours towards parking. 2-3km rough road to fort. We enjoyed a lot.
  • Excellent place for treking. Exquisite nature, One of the historical place Of "Swaraj".
  • Great trek. Most difficult one you will experience near Pune. Ideal time for visit is - when it's raining☺- July to December. Must climb up to Citadel- Balekilla for marvellous view. Take water n something to eat with you as you will be exhausted after getting on top. No provisions of food or clean water there. First capital of Swarajya, at 4000 feet altitude n 54 km from Pune.
