Just far enough from the city to get some beautiful views and fresh air, but easy to accomplish in a morning. Incline is fairly steady all the way up so it will definitely get your heart pumping, but terrain is not too technical. Some interesting...More

I visited an year ago and it was during summer. Although we could find lots of couple parrots all around. And I have been informed its a must visit during monsoon. And it took 2-3 hours to roam around that mighty fort.

The fort is at quite a distance from the city. It is emblem to the historical battle between the marathas and the mughals. The fort has quite a steep climb to the top but the view of the deccan plateau from the fort is breathtaking....More

Places in and around Pune should be visited only during monsoon season to know its real beauty. I visited Sinhagad fort in July, with light drizzle, a hot piping corn and an umbrella. Enjoyed its beauty to the core.

Roads are getting redone, which makes one lane open to both sides of the traffic, incoming and outgoing cars do slow down a bit, but the fort is still accessible, you can also chose to trek your way up.

The itinerary seems to be quite good. A few suggestions would be: 1. There are not as many places to see in lonavla as in matheran. Hence you can spend more time in Matheran by going from Pune to Matheran and maybe spending a day at Matheran. 2. Bhandardara being out of this cluster of Mahabaleshwar, Matheran, Lonavla, can be dropped. In this way you can enjoy the rest of the three places without being exerted :) Hope this helps!
