Take some time to stroll around the fort. Good view points. Avoid sun if possible. Dont forget your sun block.

“Sunset Trek to Pratapgarh Fort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

The road leads to the base of the fort where you can park your car and start climbing up to the fort. The fort is on multiple levels and offers fantastic views of the sunset. There is a small garden and with the statue of Shivaji right at the top. Many small eateries are lined up along the steps at the upper level.

“one of the spectacular forts of Maharashtra”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

the entrance of the fort is @ far end of the walls - near curves of the mountain a first timer would certainly be surprised by it. It has covered almost all the corners of the mountain making it almost impossible for an outsider or enemies to enter the fort that easily. Specially up at the west side wall is having a very very deep valley behind it. Watch out for monkeys. U can enjoy local food like zunka bhakar with spicy chutney, butter milk (tak) etc. overlooking beautiful mountains from the fort.

“An impressive fort turned into a commercialised mess”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Apparently this fort is in private hands. Which is why no one can impose any sort of order or regulations there. There are shops everywhere and garbage in between. The guided tour hardly takes you to most parts of the fort. You are left with a feeling that you have seen only a part of what might have been. Still worth a visit. Its very hot here, so best visited in the morning or early evening.
