Best place to visit during the monsoons. Great for trekking . Prefer coming from Khadwasla Lake if coming from Pune City.The road from Satara Road is bad. Visiting during summers is not advised as the hills are bleached and place will make you sad and its the other way around during Rains.Lush green surrounding and windy weather. For Fort fanatics...

For trekking, it is best place to go. Every day in morning, you can catch bus near Swargate for Sinhgadh and specially on Sunday, you will find many people going for trekking. Place is utterly beautiful, specially in monsoon season. You feel like you have reached an era of Raja. Story behind its name is also very beautiful as it... More

Good options for snacks and food. The drive to top is scenic and very relaxing. Khadak Vasla Dam is on the way and you can stop there to have some roasted corn. The biggest problem is traffic on Sundays

Well you can either go by a vehicle right up or trek up from the base. Its no wonder Tanaji had to sweat it out to climb it. Its a magnificent fort and takes your breath away. Zunka, bhakree, kanda bhajee and matka curd is must try.

Mind blowing weather. Fantastic company of good old friends. When you reach the top of the fort, there are various food stalls which serve you authentic Maharashtrian cuisine (Pithala, Bhakari, Baigan Bharta, Bhaji, Chai), which is too tasty and made on a chulla. Must visit place during monsoons.

If you are looking for some Rajsthan style forte, you will most probably be disapointed. One of the forte from great Shivaji empire, only few remains are there with a small temple dedicated to decendent of Shivaji maharaj. If you are starting from Pune, you may also visit Khadakvasla dam on the way to sinhagad. After an hour of drive... More

This place is located very near to Pune, yet a lifestyle apart. Sinhagad is consider amongst easy category of forts. Very beautiful hill section and even more blissful in monsoon. Usually I visit this fort for trekking. It takes approx. 60-120 minutes depending on one's physique. There is also a road which directly goes on top to the fort's entry... More

In the rainy's it is the place in and around Pune. On the way to fort there is Khadakwasla lake and on the other side of Khadakwasla lake is the only National Defence Academy of India. This fort has an awesome history. When you reach fort you will find some good food upside like onion-pakodas called 'kanda-bhajiya' in local language
