“Can be avoided”
Review of Pratapgarh Fort

Why to be avoided, because of the ghat journey you to have do to get there, the fort is not worth that kind of a drive. Otherwise a fairly managed fort, but completely commercial with stalls all over a near the fort. The build quality as our other forts is marvellous and you keep wondering about the architecture/ designing they used in those days without the IITians. If you have a passion for understanding more about history about forts, etc. and you love driving on real ghats, go for it, else please avoid it.

Most people who come to Mahabaleshwar are the touristy noisy kind who have ruined the ambience of the place. But fortunately such people never visit Pratapgad. It is the first fort built entirely by the great Maratha Emperor Shivaji. The fort is hardly maintained but yet glimpses of its past grandeur and strength are there to see. Don't miss the piping hot kanda bhajis, taak (buttermilk) and a simple yet wholesome meal of bhakri and zunka with bhaji and garlic chutney. Amazing experience!

Was so near to it but could not make it to he fort, but the view from satara city is magnificent also visit Sajjangad which was place of residence of Samarth Ramdas.
There are ST buses which you can hop on which will take you there which is the cheapest medium of transport available there.
