Lohagad Fort is a perfect monsoon destination to visit. Just 7 kilometres towards south on Malavali station on the Pune-Mumbai railway line, this impressive fort lies on the Sahyadri mountain ranges that divide the Indrayani and Pavana River. It is located at a height of 3400 feet above the sea level, making it perfect spot for few activities like trekking when the rainy season starts.

The fort is intricately designed and several structures added by the Peshwas including a big tank and step well are still intact. There is also a little temple and a Islamic pir (prayer area) on the fort. Ganesh Darwaja, Narayan Darwaja, Hanuman Darwaja and Maha Darwaja are the four doors to Lohagad. A few sculptures are still visible on Maha Darwaja or the main gate. The base-camp for hiking to Lohgad is Lohawadi village. The bhaji caves can be observed on the way up to the fort. The impressive Vinchu Kata (scorpion’s sting) and Visapur forts are located in close proximity to the Lohagad. The monsoon adds the beauty of this fort, you can see green grass everywhere on the fort and trust me, this is the time when, this fort becomes the most photogenic point of interest.

Offering stunning views of Pavana lake and Sahyadri Valley, a trek here is a favourite one-day activity from Pune, Lonavala and Khandala.
