It was a great adventure for all of us. The pickup was on time and also the transport. Since it was a day trek we did not had to worry much about the weather. Guys the scenes will definitely mesmerize you. The whole beauty of the place lit up as we continued our trek. Attaining a height of 1,084m, this historic fortress was built during the late 1713-1720s. The trek was very refreshing. The history of this fort and the scenic views made us relive the past again. We also enjoyed some delicious breakfast and lunch during the trek.

Trek to Visapur fort is the best monsoon Trek .you will get small big falls on the way to Visapur and the view from the top of fort is just unbelievable.it is like a heaven on earth. Soak in the amazing beauty of this region with the scenic views. We were 5 people who went for this trek. As it was a day trek we did not ad to worry about anything. Also, everything was very well arranged. The food was average.

Overview

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.

    Decent location for a fairly short but uphill trek. No Especially pleasant in the monsoons although expect a crowd on Sundays and holidays. It does not take much time to reach the fort from the base. Feel the thrill as you climb the rocky lanes. The weather is simply awesome. Nature at its best. Overall it was a great experience for a 1 day trek.

    It was a very worthy trek. The pick up was on time and so was all the arrangement. The view from the top of the fort is mesmerising. Awesome scenic beauty. Be careful as you walk as it might be slippery at times. This fort along with its twin-fort or the Lohagad Fort, forms an amazing trekking destination in Maharashtra. The best part was the timing they it was all according to the plan. Great experience.
