It's around 25 km from Pune city. On the way you can stop by khadakwasla backwaters. It a good visit in monsoon and don't forget to have pitla bhakri and dahi which is awesome and the taste like none other. Avoid on weekends. If not avoidable reach the summit before 10.30 to avoid rush. While parking leave enough room ahead... More

It is a wonderful place to visit, has cool breeze, nice atmosphere. A good 1 day hill station break, views are interesting, so don't forget the camera. What you need to plan, it has a lot of walking, while there is parking at the base of the fort, if it is full the forest dept controls parking, this is controlled... More

I have been to this place several times. Very close to Pune. The trekking path is tagged as EASY. I have seen very old-aged people trekking there. Get a cab from Pune and reach to the base point of Sinhaghad and start trekking from there. Local cabs are also present to take you to the top if you want to... More

At the start of Mansoon, it is very pleasant . You can enjoy the road trip to fort and also the clouds on the fort. With my experience, if you want to enjoy the climate , then should prefer start of the mansoon. Otherwise Nov-dec is best time to enjoy clear view from the top.

Sinhagad is a popular all season destination near Pune. It is a short Getaway and good for a day trip. However this place is super duper crowded in the weekend making it extremely difficult to find a parking for the vehicle. This place is not well managed for the crowd that comes here. For the nominal entrance fee taken -... More

Did a walk from the bottom to top in burning heat. Liked the small stalls on the trail where you could rest in shade and buy drinks. Coming to the top, the views are amazing!

We often leave Pune to visit quiet and beautiful sites of Sinhagad Fort...just a little more than an hour drive from busy, bustling Pune. Please note, there are two big antennas for which a big noisy generator powers them...it is difficult to figure out when the generator is on...but when it is off ... the quiet is incredible. The views... More

We trekked up to the fort while we were in NDA in Dec 13. Start early if you would like some time at the top. The trek was wonderful, and we took it easy, photographing the lovely scenery as we walked up. Thank God for the lovely weather. The kids started late and moved to the fort in a vehicle... More
