    Visapur Fort Trek, Maharashtra
    l
    Lonavala

    About the Activity:The Vispaur Fort is locatted in the Pune district of Maharashtra. Attaining a height of 1,084m, this historic fortress was built during the late 1713-1720s. Steeped in history and some of the glorious tales of the past, this historic fort was built by the first Peshwa of the valorous Maratha Empire. But was later conquered by the British in 1818. Visapur Fort is larger and at a higher elevation than its twin fort- Lohagad. These two roofless buildings surrounded by outer or veranda walls said to have once been Government offices. There is a well which local legend says was built by the Pandavas. In 1885, near the north wall there was an iron gun ten feet long and of four-inch bore, marked with the Tudor Rose and Crown, flanked by the letters E. R. This is probably a gun of Queen Elizabeth’s reign probably taken as bounty from an English ship and presented to the Peshwa by Kanhoji Angre or some other commander of the Maratha navy. Like other guns on the fort, it has been disabled by breaking off its trunnions. Close to it are the remains of an old Mahadev shrine.

Rajmachi Fort is located near near Lonavala. We walked and trekked about 20kms from Lonavala station to Rajmachi fort. We have to cross a U-shaped valley. On the way, we came across many waterfalls among which few were really beautiful. We went for trekking in the month of August i.e. rainy season. Its best o go there in during rains because rains keeps you fresh and energetic in that location. Near fort there is a very small town. The local people give their homes on rent and also provide food. The food is really very good and cheap too (keeping the location in mind). We can travel more than half of the way by vehicles. There are no toilets...we have to do it in open :P Its a must visit place. One cannot forget this experience!

Rajmachi is slowly gaining popularity and certainly it should. the views from the top of the fort are stunning. Also the trail is adorned with beautiful waterfalls. I just could not get up once I reached the Fort. Loved the entire trekking experience. Though its a 15km trek but then again the views are so beautiful that for once you will not at all feel worn out or exhausted.
