  • Trip introduction

    Lohagad (Iron Fort) is one of the most popular treks in Maharashtra and for numerous reasons. This easy trek is perfect for nascent adventurists and nature enthusiasts. Walking through lush green trees and crossing tiny gurgling streams is extremely exciting. The climb to the top can get a little challenging because of the slippery rocks, but the view from the top is absolutely worth the effort. Gather a group of friends and gear up for this fun-filled adventure!

    Destination

    Lohagad is situated near Lonavala and is protected by the Archaeological Survey of India, and also offers some spectacular views of surrounding forts. With rain clouds descending on the mountains and enveloping them in mist, the experience during the rains is unmatchable. The main attraction of this fort is the famous Vinchu Katta (Scorpion tail), as it resembles the tail of a scorpion. The tail is roughly 2 kms in length and the view from the end is quite something!
