An absolutely delightful place. Please take a guide along once you have negotiated a price, as it helps to have background on different parts of the fort. Once done, you can ask the guide to leave and stroll about on your own. Take the rope way to the top if climbing is an issue, there are about 1500 odd stairs... More

The amount of energy and Thrilling experience this fort gives during trekking is awesome. The best part of this place is that there are Very less people on the fort. The peace and silence around the fort are divine. The fort is very beautiful and not in very good shape still its name Rajgad truly stand by its name.

We visited Rajgad in early January. Boarded bus from Swargate to velhe base village. Had some breakfast there & started climbing the fort. The height of the fort is too high for starters but we felt it relatively easy. But it's tiring a bit. After around 3-4 hours we reached the top on the padmavati machi only to find that... More

On the top, there are remains of historical buildings. The renovation is on. Takes about 2-3 hours to go around. Ideally one day trip from Pune. Local food available on the top but... More

Rajgad Fort is around 1,400 above MSL. This is one of the largest forts that Shivaji ever used. Was the capital the Maratha Empire under him for almost 26 years, before he moved his capital to Raigad. The fort has a huge diameter at the base, supposedly around 40 km in all. Would have been extremely difficult to lay siege... More
