  • Trip introduction

    This one day trek takes you to the sister forts of Visapur and Lohagad, and lets you explore the historic ruins there. It is a fairly easy trek, suitable for absolute beginners and is a great choice for those looking for a quick getaway from the city life. Along with the ancient forts, you'll also get to experience the brilliant greenery of the Sahyadris during the monsoon season. From the top, you'll also be greeted to the magnificent views of Pawna reservoir, Tikona Fort, and Tung Fort. You'll also get to explore caves, broken cannons, ancient carving, and several water cisterns at the forts.

    Destination

    Located close to Pune, Visapur and Lohagad forts offer a great experience of trekking in the Western Ghats without much challenge as the trails are well marked, and easy to navigate. The best time to trek to these two forts is during the monsoon season when the trail is surrounded by lush greenery with mossy boulders dotting the trail and small streams draining from the top, and the green hills that contrast dramatically with the grey skies - making the experience truly breathtaking.
