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
Beautiful fort to visit. It was a very interesting and adventurous trek. You need need to keep in mind few points. There are 2-3 ways to complete the trek. You need to choose the best option whichever will suit you. Also you would have to carry sufficient amount of water as no water resources are available. Overall a good experience.
It was really awesome place and nice and adventures trekking place also, but there has been a season time from June to September only because of that monsoon season. We guys went trip and had thrilling and adventures trekking. It made my day more memorable... Trekking people know what are things have to taken and how to go in the forest area like that. So if u guys a have time visit the place and enjoy the adventure's....
Fort is easy for trekking. Once you reach on top, you can explore the fort and scenery. It will take around 1-2 hours if you are exploring the fort nicely. Lohagad is next to this fort so if you start early morning you can complete both the forts. Water reservoirs are there over the fort but the water is not potable. You can take your vehicle till fort base as road has been created for it.
A short trek of about 30 minutes or so can get you to the top of the fort, there is a lot to explore on the fort...if one is interested. The highlight is the fortification, it's simply mind blowing to view and walk along it. Great panaromic views from the top, highly recommended during the monsoon season. It takes about 2+ hours to view everything possible on the fort. There are two ways to get to the top, one of them is a tougher as compared to the other. Overall an easy trek and a delight to the eyes once you're at the top. Would be really good if you get to know about the history of this place and then visit..I'm trying to search for it myself.
Awesome!!! You have to be here in mansoon season to enjoy the most of it. We had a trekking here in the day time and the road which leads to here is easy and clean. You enjoy the most as you have to trek through the road where water is flowing. If you go off season you will miss this part. One can have a one day trip here.
