Another similar fort of Maharashtra. Best to be visited in rains during monsoon. An ascent of about 200 stairs. The view from above the fort is great. Inside the fort there are a lot of tea and snacks stalls along with the ones from where you can buy souvenirs and gifts. Bhavani Temple is a must visit inside the fort. There is also a Hast Kala Kendra(a shop of handicrafts) from where various kinds of hand crafted material can be brought.
Pratapgad is around 20-25 kms from Mahabaleshwar. It is one of the most important and historic fort. The construction and design of this fort is phenomenal.One can hire a guide and know the history of this fort.They charge around 300-500Rs. Vehicles can be taken till the base of the fort. Parking is available but it might be crowded during weekends. Try to reach as early as possible to see the fort entirely and properly. The views that one gets to see from the fort is mesmerizing especially during monsoon.
Excellent views of valleys... Especially in cloudy and winter days... Well designed entrance... Solid structure. Local guides exaggerate stories while explaining spots and its history... Read facts of the fort online beforehand. Take care of senior members in rainy season over the steps... Good place
I just loved this place. It's has very historic importance and you feel very proud that we had a great warrior.
Very good place to visit for people who like historical places and monuments. Scenery is also very good.
