A must trip in latter Rainy Season..I went in mid-August. We reached by 8 am at the fort entrance. Took 1 hour car-journey from Wakad, Pune. People were walking /trekking from the foothill only. We had tea and snacks at the start; as the overall trip was of 3 to 4 hours. We loved the nature's foggy weather, its scenic... More

Most enjoyable experience to visit Sinhagad is to trek all the way up from its base. It takes 1 to 1.5 hours to go all the way up depending on your fitness level and less than 1 hour to come down. Best time to go is after Monsoon (September to November) when you walk through the greenery and views are... More

Its beautiful during Monsoons if you can avoid the crowd which is a rarity.I visit during weekdays with my wife because weekends are jam packed and rather you find people taking more snaps & eating than enjoying the views...

I visited the place on 24th August 2014. Around 48Km from Magarpatta, Pune It rained a lot, you have blind turns and slippery roads so better hire a cab rather than your bikes as we did and suffered a bit. And If you think you are good riders get some good bikes and all your gears. One of our bikes... More

It's the place to go in August when the monsoon has turned the hills green. Great for bird watching. But you must trek up not drive. About 45 minutes up and then you arrive at the Sinhagadh Forts entrance. Its mostly ruins up there. On the way up there are plenty of waterfalls to photograph too. Its a day trip... More

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
