  • Trip introduction

    This Rajmachi trek is a double delight, where participants get a chance to explore two beautiful forts - Shrivardhan and Manoranjan, on one weekend. The trip includes an overnight stay in tents.

    There is no trekking involved on Day 1 as you'll be driven directly to the campsite. On Day 2, you'll set off from Rajmachi village to explore Manoranjan and Shrivardhan forts. This takes about 3 hours, and is a fun morning trek for anyone.

    IMPORTANT: Participants need to reach Lonavala station by 17:30 hrs to meet the group.

    Destination

    Rajmachi is a quaint village in the Karjat region of Maharashtra. Rajmachi peak has two fortified structures - the Shrivardhan fort and Manoranjan forts, built by the warrior-king Shivaji during the 17th century. Situated 17 km from Lonavala, the fort was a strategic one, overlooking Borghat which was a historical trade route. The monsoons are a good time to visit Rajmachi, when the entire route is covered in a blanket of green with patches of wildflowers.
