  • Trip introduction

    Lohagad is one of the most beloved forts of Maharashtra. It offers great landscape and an exciting but easy trek to weekend adventurers looking for some outdoorsy fun. With an altitude of about 3,400 ft, the views from the top are great for photography, but the real fun is in getting to the top. During the monsoon, this trail is dotted with streams, tumbling waterfalls and wild plants and flowers, attracting nature lovers and trekking enthusiasts from all over the state.

    Put on your raincoats and trekking shoes, gather a group of adventurous friends and embark on a day trek to Lohagad.

    Destination

    Lohagad Fort lies close to Lonavala, so it's easy to combine the two. The hills around are covered in mist, and heavy rain clouds descend every now and then to drench anyone underneath. From the top, you can see other forts of the region, as well as a sprawling landscape of paddy fields filled with rainwater.
