Visapur Fort, Lonavala Reviews
Awesome trekking experience... You can take your vehicle at some point on the hill... Then only 25 minutes trekking only if you want your visit safe comfortable and easy... You can start trekking from the very beginning tough if you want it exciting... You should go and enjoy the view from the top. Keep water and refreshments with you But don't make your baggage heavy.... Enjoy trekking with natural beauty.
Very easily accessible from the nh 4. Early morning is the best time to go if you want the place to yourself. There is a road to take you more than half way up so if you want to climb all the way, park your vehicle near the steps that lead to the caves. Beautiful views from the top. The climb is up what must be waterfall in the monsoon. OK for kids who are 8 or older. Places that sell snacks/tea etc don't open till 9am. The fort walls are intact and a pleasure to walk along.
Very easy 30 minutes trek to the top. Best time to trek will be in monsoon as there will be greenery everywhere and small waterfalls will also be there. Multiple routes to the top, pick one that looks challenging to you. You can get fresh poha and lemonade once you reach there.
Awesome experience....It was like a adventurous trip for us. We did not take a usual route and somehow we had managed to reach the top of the fort which in turn gave us a life time memories. It would be nice if you visit this place in monsoon season like in the month of July.
Small trek for the novice trekkers. difficult level is easy.3-4 water ponds on the top. It is a nice place for camping, bring your own tents and stay for the night.
