Amazing location . rich in flora & lots of reptile watch around. A long day off means a small trek around the fort area.

Its a beautiful place to visit more so during the moonsoons. The rains make the place lush green. The view from the fort is even better. The drive up is serene and one can even trek up. Its about 45 mins trek, but not adviseable in the moonsoons as the path gets very slippery. On reaching the top one is... More

I went to Sinhagad fort during Monsoon season and the natural beauty of this place left me in Awe. As the rain was pouring down, the hills got beautiful. For a while we were not able to see the villages that are surrounding the hills, but as the weather cleared, the view was breath taking. The fort is OK, and... More

This fort is a proof of devotion of Tanaji Malusare towards Shree Shivaji Maharaj and his glory. If you are from Pune or an outsider you must visit Sinhgad fort. Winter and Rainy Season among the best times to visit, even visiting this place in summer will make you feel relaxed n cool for sure. Great place for nature lovers,... More

The trekking is a good 2-2.5 hrs. uphill and 1-1.5 hrs downhill. It is indeed good. There are a number of local villagers shops at intervals throughout the pathway that offer water, lemon water and some snacks. We started the trekking in the morning at 7.30 AM and reached the top by 10 AM. The weather at the top on... More

The best is the journey. Its long winding roads to the top of the hill will dense vegetation all around gives one such a feeling of BLISS. But once the ride is over then there is nothing much to do at the top. There is multiple number of steps to climb. The fort is almost in ruins and covered with... More

Do visit this scenic place. Best tome to visit is early mornings or at sun rise. There is a good approachable road to reach at top. BUT please take care that you do not litter the place with plastic. If possible please pick up some plastic or paper waste and put it in dustbins. You can spend 3-4 hours over... More

if you are in pune for a visit and looking for a day out in nature, plan to visit sinhagad fort. Either go for a hike or go via motorable road to reach the top. You can either catch a bus from swargate/shaniwarwada which goes till base village or go by your own vehicle. Start early morning around 5-30-6 AM... More
