“Nice day trip and enjoyable trek”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2012

Sinhagad fort is some 30km from pune. It is a beautiful trek with some nice view at points. It took us just over an hour to reach the top where the vehicle parking is. There is not much which remains of the fort as such but the whole area is quite nice and big. You can walk to various points of the fort area for some nice view and/or a secluded lovely walk. During monsoons these walks are very beautiful with clouds and showers accompanying you. The area is well maintained with some nice eating places for snacks. Thankfully the place is not spoilt by rowdy crowd.

“Great to visit in July”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2012

I visited this place in the last day of July and I must say, it is AWESOME!! There isn't much of the fort that remains, but it was a nice hangout place. We had excellent food there. And also, we had the best weather imaginable. The view from the fort to the downside was simply divine.

They could do with a better approach road and a better crowd control. But overall, a great experience.

“Sinhagad Fort - beautiful, walk / climb up the other side”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2012

Have had the chance to stay there, thru' an outbound program. Was a great trip. We were there climbing from the other side, it was mostly a walk and then some climb and then some more steep stuff. And it was raining..........(drizzling actually), major fun.

“The Best Romantic Gateaway near Pune”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2012

I and my wife have been going to Sinhagad every moonson for the last 5 years!!

Its offers an amazingly romantic settings in monsoons. The walk in the clouds! Cool Breeze blowing on your face! Greenery, Lakes, Valleys, Stone paths soothe your senses. The hot tea & kanda bhaji make perfect snacks in the cloudy ambience. Zunka Bhakri is also very popular.

It is advisable to travel early in the morning as the traffic increases after 10am.
