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.

If you are choosing to visit this fort in Monsoon, Then there is no better place near Pune during this season. Surrounded by amazing scenery. Trekking is not difficult though as still fort is in good shape and have steps to reach at top. Along with friends I reached Malavali Railway station around 8 In morning. Fort base is around... More

The view at the top is really awesome. You also get a good view when you have climbed halfway. But the con is that to see the view it requires you to climb a lot of steps. Also, the closing time is at 6:30 pm. This is the best spot I have visited in lonavala

We walked up from a parking in Bhaje. The earlier part is motorable, till the foothill of the last hill which hosts the fort. We walked up anyway. The trek is very green and it can be very quiet - which was very pleasant. The long trek made the final summit even more worthwhile. Once on the top of the... More

Ways to reach : There are two ways to do the trek, 1) Walk all the way from Bhaje village upto 11.9 Kms to reach the top or 2) One can drive upto foot hills of this fort which is Lohegadwadi and start climbing from there. As weather was not that cloudy on the day and it would have been... More

Its great place to visit and nearby pune location. Its an easy trek (or No trek for experienced trekkers). There are two ways to go to lohagarh 1. Malavli -> Bhaje Gaon -> lohgarh 2. Lonavla -> Lohgarh. I will prefer 1st way, as we can enjoy awesome waterfalls at Malavli and Bhaje.

After a tiring journey to Mulshi Dam and Thahni ghat, we scaled this Fort. Wonderful view of green villages and water bodies like Mulshi Lake. After covering about 80% of the height, the so called steps become slippery due to the monsoon and we avoided it, due to the age of 56 years. Very enjoyable and adventurous place for youngsters....

By making a tar road till almost the Fort the pleasure of trekking on unpaved raods has been destroyed. But, the road makes it easy for wannabe trekkers. I suggest you leave early in the morning - auto rickshaws drop you till the Bhaja village and with some cajoling may drop you a bit ahead. Ensure that you have caps,... More
