    Destination

    Rohida or Vichitragad fort is situated about 15 kms from Bhor village, in the Pune district of Maharashtra. The fort stands bare in the summer and winter months, but is lush and abundant with flora in the monsoon. The torrent winds at the top of the fort are quite refreshing and can be a welcome change for trekkers. Trekkers can explore the fort which is home to an old temple, water tanks, Chor darvaja, Buruj (bastion) and a chuna grinding wheel.
