  • Trip introduction

    Lohagad in its literal sense means ‘Iron Fort’. It is one of the best and easiest one-day treks throughout the year. However, the monsoon transforms this area into a green wonderland, full of burbling streams and waterfalls. Trekking here is a unforgettable experience, especially with the slippery rocky areas posing a fun challenge.

    IMPORTANT: The trip also offers participants a delicious vegetarian breakfast.

    Lohagad is now protected under the Archeology Survey of India. Trekkers cannot camp here for the night as the entry doors are shut at 17:00 hrs, so do plan an early start.

    Destination

    Located in the Western Ghats, close to the popular hill station Lonavala, Lohagad is surrounded by beautiful landscape. The undulating hills are covered with greenery in the monsoon, and dotted with waterfalls. The rain clouds and the mist float in, obscuring the pinnalce every now and then. You'll also get some great views of other nearby forts like Visapur fort, Tung fort, and Tikona fort.
