If you’ve had your fair share of trekking experience and want to move towards slightly tough climbs, the adventure to Torna fort is an ideal one. Located on the tallest hill of Pune district, the night trek to Torna fort offers uninhabitated views of the Sahyadri ranges along with a glimpse of Maratha history.
The fort was the first one to be captured by Shivaji Maharaj and has a legend that pots full of gold were found while he was repairing it after a battle.
So if you're up a beautiful moonlight trek, and a spectacular sunrise over the hills the next day, this is the trip for you!
With beautiful panoramic views of the surrounding valleys, the Torna fort stands tall at 4600 feet. The route is usually covered in wildflowers and the top of the fort is in a shroud of mist owing to its high altitude. The area is a haven for nature lovers and photography enthusiasts.
