Visited here with friends. Top of the fort gives you a feel as if you were in paradise. beautiful ponds on the top surrounded by long green grass are total refreshers. Suggestions: Visit in late monsoons when kaash flowers are their best bloomed. Be prepared with a little bit of trekking. Sports shoes would be an advantage. Carry caps/hats, drinking... More

We visited this place during peak rainy season & the journey to top of this fort is memorable. Risky journey but highly adventurous and enjoyable if you are withing your safety limits.

A good fort to trek to. you either need to start from Malvali railway station or near Bhaje Caves. No fun in bringing vehicle to the base. Roads are quite steep. Don't need to follow roads as there are trails made for trekking. By that you reach faster as compared to walking on road. You can use the road to... More

The place still reflects the beauty and amount of labor and courage required to build such a fort. You can experience the historic fighting strategy. The canons,... More

It takes about 30 mins to climb upto there. The stairs are average. Shoes are must specially for kids. On the top things to see are the view of entire valley and pavana lake and there is a Mosque on the top. There is a big ground on top of the fort.
