Sinhagad is really beautiful place on outskirts of Pune. One can go on tracking as well as through motor-able road. The atmosphere above at top is really mind blowing with lots of mist and you feel like clouds are passing beneath you.

You can park near the gate. IF the parking lot is full you need to park alongside the road. They collect Rs 50 for cars at the bottom of the hill itself. Junka Bhakar is good. Restrooms are ok but most of the time there is no water and thats bad. Understandable since it is at the top of the... More

Historically important. Beautiful nature. Advisable to climb from bottom, rather than by vehicle. Kanda bhaji, Pithal bhakari are tasty foods available. But now crowded and should be controlled.

I was not sure what I would see until I reached Sinhagad Fort. Beautiful place, the weather makes it even better. My recommendation, go there when it is raining, or in the early hours. It is a long walk trying to cover the entire fort but the breathtaking views are all worth it.

What else you need when you get trekking, adventure, scenice, peace, food at all one place. History, Culture etc. are other glimpse you will get here. Must visit place in monsoon, or you can visit in winters. If you are going in evening, be ready for some problems in parking.

Sinhagad, Sinhgarh, or Sinhgad, is a fortress located roughly 30 kilometres southwest of the city of Pune, India. Previously called Kondhana, the fort has been the site of many important battles, most notably the battle of Sinhagad in 1670.
