Visapur Fort, Lonavala Reviews - Write a Review
Better to take a local person along with you for the trek.... Or you might miss the path in between... Give them 200-300 Rs for the same and they will take you there and bring back... It was an awesome experience.. Nice place to visit with friends... Make sure you have enough water to be there and then back...
Best place for rainy season vacation. The views from the fort are really awesome in monsoon season. One need to talk local guide to reach there by trekking because there is no clear path for it. It is located in completely rural place so no heavy crowd and peaceful. The path of trekking is little difficult.
Amazingly beautiful. Must visit if you live trekking. Visit in rain so you can see the lush green grass and moss everywhere. There is point while trekking up where if the water is flowing too fast you cant go further. So if you are planning to go there let the rain take a little rest or you will have to come back from that point. In winter you can go anytime. Tent up the hill and dont throw waste please.
Very good fort.. Nice place to visit. Minimum 2.30 hrs required to see the all fort.
At a distance of 40 mins journey from Pune via Local-Train. This fort is amazing place for trek lovers. Get Isolated from city and you will find yourself reviving here. August - October is the best time to visit.
