I love this place. This fort is have stunning views. Very big in area, amazing weather, very good people. Good thing is, they wont allow us to carry Alcohol or that kind of stuff.
Outstanding place for a short trek or getaway.. best time to visit is monsoon... You can experience water on the stairs.. seems like you are climbing a small waterfall... Amazing climate...
These best trek. At the top of the mountain the view is spectacular. If u start it early in the morning then u can saw clouds come to grounds.
This term is a very good option for beginners. This place is about 5 km from malavli station. From the station to the foot of the mountain the tell is mostly uphill. Once you actually start climbing the fort the initial place is open, then you have to find your way through a jungle and then climb up from right next to the waterfall. This place is at the most beautiful during the monsoon season. Also as a security check all those going up the hill have to enter their name address contact number and the number of people who are going up which I found is a very good exercise. Going early would be best to avoid rush and enjoy the place to its fullest.
It's a great fort located near to the Lohagad fort. Visapur fort is one of the best place to track. A must visit fort at least once for tracking.
