Nice place and a good drive (especially bike) on the hilltop, with traditional Marathi food, a must visit before sunrise or sunset.

We visit Sinhagad fort frequently whenever we are at Pune. It is slightly outside town, but that actually works in your favour if you want a breezy bike ride. One can either go directly to the top via their vehicles or park their vehicles at the base and trek upto the top. The trek is best done in the early hours of the day and one can trek upto the fort enjoying cucumbers, raw mangoes, berries and buttermilk sold along the way by local villagefolk. There is not much to see on top except for a couple of entrance gates to the fort, Lokmanya Tilak's house and most importantly the monument to honour Tanaji Malusare, who won the fort for the Marathas and laid down his life in the process. The original name of the fort was "Kondana", which was changed to "Sinhagad"in honour of Tanaji, who was viewed as a "Sinha", the Marathi work for Lion. One should not miss lunch made up of delicious Kanda Bhaji, Jhunka - Bhakar, Vangyacha Bharit, Curds and buttermilk cooked and served fresh by local villagers. A must visit for every visitor to Pune.

Used to go often when I was studying in Pune. A lovely place for a days trip or a overnight stay. There used to be small bunglows, which used to be given on rent. A drive by a bike or a car on a full moons night is really beautiful.

Do not miss the hot Jhunka Bhakri, Kanda Bhaji & Dahi served by the locals. There is a pond called "DEVTAKI" the water is drinkable, is sweet & cold.
