    Among the best places for trekking near Mumbai, Shivneri Fort trek would take a prominent position as it is equally beautiful and adventurous like other treks in Pune and the nearby places.

    Adventure lovers and trekking expedition enthusiasts will come to Shivneri to stroll around the beautiful location which is filled with caves, rock cut architecture, water system that indicates the presence of habitation from the 1st century onwards and many more.
