  • Trip introduction

    On this trek to Visapur, you’ll explore the ruins of an ancient fort after trekking along a mountainous route. The trek begins from the base village of Patan as you begin walking under the cover of thick jungles. En route, you’ll encounter water cisterns and small river streams intersecting your trail. As you get closer to Visapur, you’ll climb on rock-cut stairs that are often flooded by monsoon rains flowing down from the fort.

    This trek is an excellent way to escape from the city for a quick weekend getaway. Fit beginners as well as experienced trekkers may attempt the trek.
