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.

Visapur Fort, Lonavala Reviews
Best place for trekking and hiking in monsoon season. Little bit difficult trek, but had an awesome and adventurous experience. The best part is you need to climb the rocks on which water keeps running down like a waterfall. There are big to huge rocks and a lots of bushes, cactus's and wild plants. Due to rain water, the place is very slippery even on rocks or plain ground, so need to be careful. Once you reach the top there is nothing much to see just a wide view of the area and greenery all over. There are 2-3 routes to complete the trek and reach the fort on the top. You need to choose the best route whichever will suit you. Also you would have to carry sufficient amount of water as no water resources are available. Views from the top and a at few points on the fort are a treat for the eyes. Must visit if you are adventure, trekking and nature lover. Historical place truly blessed by nature. Had an awesome experience.
The trek is good and slightly above easy in terms of difficulty. There are two ways to reach the top. One is the normal path and the second is from near the caves. The second route is good and a bit challenging with little steep climb at few point. Otherwise the route is easy, but yes the route is not properly defined and you can easily lost with few wrong turn. Monsoon will be a good season to go for trek. It's a small trek and one can easily complete the whole trek in 2-3 hours. At the top, the fun part begins, where you need to climb the rocks, with water running down, Creating small waterfall at few points. The trek at this point can prove to be a bit tricky as the path is slippery and one needs to be more careful on these. The jungle is slightly dense at few points. Carry your own food and water supply as there are no shops/gumti in the way. The view at the top is beautifully and amazing.
A great and huge fort and a small trek for the beginners. You will find number of plateau while climbing up. At the top the fort is massive. During monsoon the place is very crowded. There is one route filled with stones and steps where water flows through these. It's really scenic beauty when the water passes through this and you are going through the same route. It's very near to the station so easily accessible.
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.
It is good for trekking. Awesome for beginners. Wear shoes and carry eatables. The place is worth visiting when it is lightly raining. You walk through trees and then come to boulders lying in your path towards fort. There are not many remains of fort except gaurding walls and few rooms. There is huge plain area on the mountain where you can sit and relax. It is really refreshing.
