Sinhagad fort is an iconic fort of Pune ! But it has now become so commercial, have started despising this place now ! The trekking part is still good , but if you planning to go up in the car, then you better avoid !

Not sure, why is it so hyped but it is just a normal place. Although it must offer great views during the monsoon season.

A nice place to be provided you are early. If you are late it's a mad rush. Sometimes it seems the whole town had decided to be there. But it's a nice place especially if you love rustic food. Pithla bhakari. Kanda bhaji, and dahi....More

Even though it takes efforts to reach the top, it is the best place to trek with family and you will see several families doing so in week-ends.

Nothing Much to see. Over Hyped Fort. Approach Road is too bad. I would recommend to visit if you all are interested in having fresh Bhakri with Pit and Sabhji. Hotels make it fresh and tasty

You need to climb about 75 steps to reach fort The steps are not continuous but in the format of plane and steps It’s easy easy to walk Persons with wheelchair may find it difficult to climb steps Rgds Ayya

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!
