Why would any one visit a fort 800 m above the ground at a godforsaken place where there are no ambulance services, no emergency backup, no police, no decent restaurant and NO PUBLIC TOILET. I was heartbroken to see that we live in a country where electricity can be supplied continuously to run a ropeway at tourist destination as but... More

Since childhood, I always wanted to visit this place. Had imagined about this fort through many Shivaji Maharaj stories It was a great visit indeed. We climbed the fort and came down via Ropeway. It was a fun and fairly easy trek with well defined route, stairs and green shelter. To avoid heat, we started around 7.15 and reached Mahadarwaja... More

Its about 120kms away from Pune.We visited with friends and went up the fort by very basic, simple trek + ~1000 steps. I recommend this route if you are fit to climb ~1500 steps. The track reduces about 500 steps and is definitely worth it. The trek doesn't need any special skills or cloths. So, go for it if you... More

Raigad Fort is the capital of Maratha Empire constructed by the Great Shivaji. It has importance like pilgrimage for every Maharashtra citizen. It needs at least 3 hours to go up climbing 3,000 steps. Ropeway service is one more option with waiting time due to high demand.

The Fort is located at the top of Hill. You can take a walk of approx 2 hour or take ropeway. You will reach at the top in 10 min. We took ropeway, it will cost you Rs. 250 return journey. If you are travelling near Roha, Indupur - it is close to 2 hours journey. You can see Shivaj... More

Although the fort is in ruins presently, if still has a very high significance, historically and from the tourism point of view.

Place is worth visiting during early monsoons when you don't have too much of rains. Beautiful scenery is all around when you reach to fort at hilltop. While going by ropeway is convenient however if you love trekking, you may try the trekking route. But don't take small kids or people who don't do trekking, as passage is narrow at... More

Raigad fort is in Mahad of Raigad district of Maharashtra. Built by Shivaji, it was his capital in 1674 when he was crowned King. After seeing Rajgad near Pune, we decided to take an extra couple of days to see this fort. It rises 2,700 feet above MSL and one has to traverse almost 2000 steps to reach it from... More
