Visapur Fort - Review
Located near Lonavla, Visapur is a majestic fort at an elevation of 3556 feet above the sea level. Adorned with caves and reservoirs of water, the Visapur was a prominent fort of the Maratha Empire. The ruins of a large stone house can be still observed which operated as the home and palace of Peshwas.
There is also a huge stone carving of Hanuman- a Hindu god and a patron deity. There are also several temples dedicated to Hanuman all over the fort.
Hike up to the fort to get a glimpse into the reminisces of the Maratha empire and get a breath-taking view of the valley!

Visapur Fort, Lonavala Reviews
Amazing fort to explore. Had a great time while trekking this fort. Had been here during the monsoon season in 2017 and the view was just amazing, greenery everywhere. The trek is quite thrilling where you need to walk over big stones. I would prefer this instead of going to some amusement parks.
If you are ready for a trekking, pack up your bags with water bottle and some snacks only :-P Monsoon season with heavy rain is the best time to visit. Nice place, you can enjoy mountains, waterfall over here. But nothing to explore at Fort, when you reach it's peak. Overall you can have a good day to enjoy :-D
Ultimate natural beauty if you are visiting in monsoon. You must visit this fort at least once in lifetime. One hour trek route to reach at the top. Half of the route need to pass from downwards water in to stones. There is a lot to explore on top of the fort since it's huge in size. In monsoon you are surrounded by waterfalls and lots of fog.
This is one of the best place for trekking. The fun part is you need to climb the rocks on which water flows down. Once you reach the top there is nothing to see but a small jungle. Overall trekking experience is awesome. Best time to visit is monsoon
Awesome place..... If you want a place like hillstation then I must've suggested this.. best to visit in rainy and winter season.. there is not much as architectural construction.... But a wall all around the top of fort is there... And there is way on this wall... There are some windows in the wall.. and you can see the haven through those.. but I'll most prefer this place in rainy and winter season only. 😊
