This is one of best forts near pune. It is very close and 30 mins bike ride. Visit during monsoons - the place is flush with greenery. Take some snacks and drinks and travel to the top with freinds. Its a good experience.

Its more like one good solid work out season to reach there. Fort is not worth to see since everything is in ruins not maintained at all but go there as good tracking option. Carry some water and food along with you.

Here are a few tips: Best time to visit: Rainy season (June-August) - The fort gets hidden in the clouds all throughout the rains. It adds a wonderful dimension to the hike. If you want better views, then avoid this season. Hike difficulty: It... More
