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

We went on a trek to Sinhagad fort couple of weeks back..have to say that this is one of our favourite places now, especially for birding. We generally go to the Sinhagad Valley for birding; however this time planned to trek all the way to the top and combine it with birding all along the way.. The climate was super... More

This is a "must visit" place for anyone who comes to pune. As for the Puneites, this is a ''must attempt'' on a holiday or weekend. The route to sinhgarh is very scenic and one can choose either to drive up to the fort or take the road "more traveled" and go trekking all the way. The motorable road and... More

On Saturday my colleagues from work and I spent the morning hiking up to Sinhagad Fort, located about 21 miles south of Pune. It was a one-of-a-kind hike and had a lot of unique-to-India elements including vendors selling food and juices along the way. The summit which is also accessible via a paved road and is well developed with several... More

Foot prints of history of Shivaji's time. Fort is very nice. Too much story to be unfold from this place. You'll come to know how do they manage all to take over this fort with their canons. Fort is one day vist. Nice place must visit nearby Pune.
