I liked this place even more than Shaniwarwada. Little far from the main town, the fort is an absolute historical masterpiece. If u take a guide, u can go back to the historical days. The stable where the horses were kept smells so stingy even today. One needs to walk up to a long distance to enjoy the entire fort area. Worth visiting.

For a nice little quick day trip in Pune this might just be your spot. This is a nice little mountain fort with dramatic views which is actually even better when misty or foggy. The walk is easy with concrete paved walkways throughout the 7 to 12 degree grade. At the base parking lot you will find some local fair cooked on-site but be cautious as if you are not accustomed you may end up with some stomach trouble given the way the food is prepared. Definitely a nice quick day trip out of Pune to give you a bit of the India country side flavor.

We went here in August on a heavy rainy day. It is surrounded by beautiful mountains and greenry. During rain, this place is the best to go on a long drive.

Amazing location . rich in flora & lots of reptile watch around. A long day off means a small trek around the fort area.

Its a beautiful place to visit more so during the moonsoons. The rains make the place lush green. The view from the fort is even better. The drive up is serene and one can even trek up. Its about 45 mins trek, but not adviseable in the moonsoons as the path gets very slippery. On reaching the top one is greeted by the locals selling their products of hot cup of tea, jhunkha bhakhar with its tongue tickling chutney, baingan burta, and dahi. Its a must for all to visit this place especially to get a glimpse of the fort which was built with precision and planning by the great warrior Shivaji.
