    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.

    About the Activity: Embark on an exciting trek to Kalsubai peak from Mumbai and have the pleasure of conquering the highest peak in Maharashtra. Located in the Akole Taluka of the Ahmednagar district in Maharashtra, the Kalsubai Temple and the Kalsubai, according to local legend, was the name of a tormented daughter-in-law who ran away to the top of a hill to escape harassment from her in-laws. She is believed to have disappeared here and the locals built a temple in her memory on the peak’s summit. The hill is named Kalsubai after her. Kalsubai, though a highest peak, from trekking point of view is comparatively easy. The peak has a temple which many pilgrims aim at visiting. Hence, for such pilgrim trekkers, government and local villagers have made the route easy and safe by putting ladders and staircase wherever necessary. So reaching to the top is just a test of your stamina and not mountaineering skill. But once you reach the top then you get an absolutely uninterrupted view of the surroundings. No other peak pokes its nose between you and the spectacular view!

I was looking for a trekking expedition along with my friends this summer when my friend from Bangalore suggested me this amazing trek. It was one of the best treks so far. I along with my 6 friends had the most amazing time of your life. Lohagad fort near Lonavala is known for its beauty and scenic views. I had the most amazing time of my life. This was my first time that I went on a trek. Everything was very well arranged for us. We also met another group who joined the trek with us. Once you reach the top of the fort you can see a hill that divides the basins of Indrayani and Pavna. The picturesque beauty of the place is something which you should definitely see. It was a moderate trek and since it was drizzling it was a bit slippery. Soak in the beauty and witness the strong and intact gates protecting the fort. Another interesting thing was that we had the friendliest guide accompanying us. He was keeping us entertained with all his funny jokes and stories of the fort and about the Peshawas. Everything was perfect for us but be a little bit cautious when you walk through the zig zag path. Feel the excitement existing in climbing up the hill which extends up to five kilometers from Malavli. The food was average, it was basically veg food. For the ones who are looking for an adventure for one day than this is the perfect trek for you. All together it was a great adventure for us.

I was visiting my cousin in Pune for his birthday celebration and wanted to surprise him with some adventure outing. My colleague from Bangalore suggested me of this trekking expedition in Pune. I am really thankful to him for his suggestion as this trek was by far the most adventurous and fun trekking. I am not much of a trekking guy but this trek has definitely made me one now. We were picked up from the mentioned location and it was on time. We were 6 people who went on this trek. The beauty of this place just can’t be described in few words. We also made some new friends on this trek. Andharban can be best described as a heaven on earth. The scenic views with the laid back scenery will definitely mark a place in our hearts. The food provided was also good. We made few halts in between our trek to catch up some breath. We also made some new friends there during the trek. Just be a little cautious for your own safety during the trek. Gaurav our birthday boy was happy as well. After all it was his birthday and we had to make it special. After our amazing adventure we returned back to Mumabi. All together great experience and fun. Would love to visit again and recommend as well.

I was not sure when I heard this trek that we are heading for. But guys I was so wrong, I had the best time of my life. As I said that this was an amazing trek we were provided with all the equipments. I must say everything was very well organized tight from the start of our trek. We reached the base of the village from where we will start our trek. We started our trek towards Ratangad at around 10:30 AM. The views were so amazing that I was awestruck and was cursing myself for not saying yes at the first place. We had an amazing time, the fort was something you should definitely visit atleast once in your life. We also enjoyed some delicious meals during the trek. Our guide was a very friendly person, He described about each of these places in details. We also visited the Amruteshwar Temple at Ratanwadi. The most interesting part came when we had to camp inside the cave at the top of the mountains. We also trek through the dense jungles and the strong wind was something which made us feel the fun. We also hiked to Khutta Pinnacle via Trimbak Darwaja and this is where we concluded our trek. Altogether it was a lot of fun trek. I would really recommend this trek.

I always wanted to head out for a trek along with my friends but never had the chance. This time my friends booked a trek for us without my knowledge as a surprise. And guys! I tell you I had the best time of my life trekking and enjoying the scenic views. Our trek was to Matheran, I am sure most of you might have already heard about this tiny little hill station. Our meeting point was Bhivpuri Station and at around 8:30 AM we started our trek. Trekking through the scenic views was definitely a cure for our mind and souls. We reach the Garbett Plateau and the view was something which will be cherished by us forever. We also made some new friends during the trip. With the scenic views we also got a chance to witness the diversified flora and fauna of this region. We also had very wonderful guide who was very friendly and keeping us all occupied with his funny jokes.

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!
