    Too hectic if you have kids. Go enjoy if you can walk uphill 10 Km.
    Worst part is unplanned traffic allowed by forest department, causing chaos every where on Sinhagad and approach roads to Sinhagad. There should be online booking system introduced to make sure limited visitors and ther have better experience. Also there is too much commercialization, most of the tourist come there to have local food, as well as and as well as fritters. Most of them care less on the quality.

    Sinhagad fort.. A must see place.
    Visit to the fort is mandatory, if you are in Pune... Full of history. Get a guide as well, other wise you will be missing a lot many things. You can reach the hill top by car at the base of the citadel. How ever there is a mad rush on weekends and on 31st December / long weekends. Once the parking is full, traffic is stopped at the bottom of the hill. There can be a severe traffic jam at the top. So... Avoid holidays. Alternatively there is a walking track of five kilometers for those who are physically fit. However if you must see the place,on holidays, reach the fort before 6:00am in the morning ...which is the best time and see the sunrise. Avoid afternoon, especially in the Summer as it can get very hot. Some points.. Apart from the crowds, the place is littered with plastic waste. In any way.. this is a must see place.

    Sinhgad Fort, a historical must visit place
    It was a sort of planned trip on one Sunday morning of February (not the best time to visit though) with friends. We spend almost 3 hours there and found this place really amazing. The best part, it was a clean place and no littering by visitors. Bad part, it is not preserved much by the government. If required, they can put some entry fee but needs to preserve the history and heritage. A good place to visit with family and friends. You can also enjoy local Maharastrian food with really good taste (under the tree and on a mat, typical desi style). A must visit place if you are in or around Pune.

    A brush with history, food, views. What else do you need for the weekend :)
    Sinhgadh and Pune are synonymous to each other. This place flows with thousands of years of history ( Yes, not hundreds but thousands). There are multiple ways you can reach the place Trek up, drive or hitch a ride up from the foothills. If you drive up early morning before sunrise, you can catch magnificent sunrise views of the valley on either side and also satisfy your taste buds at the various hutments in Khau Galli

In 1968 for about 9 months I was under training at Armament Institute situated on the foothills pf Sinhagad Fort but could not find time to visit this famous fort due to heavy engagement in my training courses before being posted out. However, I always had a desire to visit thie place, known to be a witness to the valor and sacrifice of a great warrior and commnader of Shivaji, about which I had read in my history books in school. My recent visit to Pune fulfilled this desire. We left our hotel to leave for this fort, knowing very well that acent to this fort could be very difficult for both of us being in late seventies. After about 90 minutes we reached this place as there was heavy traffic and we lost our way also for some time. This fort is at an altitude of more than 4000 feet from mean sea level and about 2100 feet from the base of the hillock. We could go by car to reach the base after climbing about 1500 feet through a ghat road. I was under the impression that from here, the task would be easier to reach the top of the hillock but it proved to be a very difficult task to cover the remaining 500 feet through steep and dangerous steps made from rough stones. After reaching half way we wanted to turn back but continued with great difficulty as our aim was to have a realization that how our great ancient warriors and soldiers were living at this place. After reaching the top we were happy to find a restaurant where we took some rest, water, tea and snacks and then proceeded further to reach our detination. Here we found several statues made in the honour of Tanhaji, his samadhi and stone inscriptions narrating his valor and fight with the enemy till he died but conqured the fort. There is a folklore that when Shivaji was informed about this victory, he said, "Garh aya par Singh Gaya" meaning that we got the fort but lost our lion. Recently a movie has been released 'Tanhaji' starring famous Bollywood actor Ajay Devgun. From the top, one can have a panormic view of surrounding hills and Pune city, which is nearly 30km from here. Parking is available at the base of the climb besides kiosks selling water, cold drinks and snacks etc. Toilet facoties are not good. Sinhagad fort is a must visit place and a memorable experience. It is also a good picnic stop for youngsters as we found many young couples.

One of the best scenic fort in Maharashtra. A pride of Pune. There are direct buses from Swargate till Sinhagad Fort bottom. From bottom of fort there are private jeeps which carry you up to the top of fort. Per person they charge nearly 40-50 rupees depending on season and crowd. The food stalls are shifted from parking area to third gate area. You have to walk through three gates to reach the food area. It takes Just 15-20 minutes to reach the food stalls area. It's called khau galli in local language. The speciality of this area is curd in mud pot. It costs 30 rupees. Another super speciality is Jhunka Bhakar i.e. Junka is made by besan and bhakar is jowar roti. If u take full rice plate, you get two bhakris, unlimited Jhunka, matki or baingan bharta (any one of ur choice), with small katori of rice. Extra bhakri costs 30 rupees. Nothing extra for subji. No extra rice. For extra rice they give u more rice quantity in quarter plate for 50 rupees. We ate Jain Jhunka Bhakar and baigan bharta without onion and garlic. the food was very sumptuous and delicious. We ate at Hotel Yogesh where we were served food of very good quality with lots of love. Hope u enjoy the beautiful fort with beautiful food. 😊

Worst part is unplanned traffic allowed by forest department, causing chaos every where on Sinhagad and approach roads to Sinhagad. There should be online booking system introduced to make sure limited visitors and ther have better experience. Also there is too much commercialization, most of the tourist come there to have local food, as well as and as well as fritters. Most of them care less on the quality.
