Description :-

 Best trekking route near Mumbai and Pune for beginners.Lohagad Fort means Iron fort in Marathi, situated close to the hill station of Lonavala  and 52 km northwest of Pune, Lohagad has an elevation of 1,033 meter or 3,389 feet above sea level. The Lohagad fort is connected to the neighboring Visapur Fort which is at its eastern side by a small range. The range divides the basins of the Indrayani River and Pavana River rivers. Lohagad overlooks the Pavna reservoir, located to the south of the mountain. The hill extends to the northwest to a fortified spur, called Vinchu Kata Scorpion's tail because of its resembling shape. The four large gates of Lohagad are still in good condition and reasonably intact. The fort has been declared as a protected monument by the by Archaeology Survey of India. 

Have a glimpse of the strong and intact gates protecting the fort and interpret the stories from the period of Peshwa.

Feel the excitement existing in climbing up the hill which extends up to five kilometers from Malavli.We can reach to the top of fort by stairs. We will come across four doors while reaching the top. The first one is called 'Ganesh Darwaaja', second one is called 'Narayan Darwaaja', third one is called 'Hanuman Darwaaja' & fourth one is called 'Maha Darwaaja'. Out of this Hanuman Darwaaja is the most ancient of all the doors. Between Narayan & Hanuman Darwaaja there are two godowns which were used for storage purpose as a granary. After entering the Maha Darwaaja we come across an old 'Dargah'. Besides the Dargah there are remnants of the court. Towards right we come across 'Laxmi Kothi' which has many rooms. The treasury of Nana Phadnis was kept here. In front of this place are two cannons.
