The journey only requires you to put one foot in front of the other...again and again and again.
And if you allow yourself the opportunity to be present throughout the entirety of the trek, you will witness beauty every step of the way,
ABOUT LOHAGAD FORT
Fort is situated 52km from Pune in western India. It is at an elevation of 3,450 feet (1,052 m). Lohagad village is the base village for the fort. Now Lohagadwadi village is easily accessible by road. Trekker usually starts there trek from Malavali railway station. It is just 9km away from the station.
Lohagad has a long history with several dynasties occupying it at different periods of time. Some historical records say, Satavahanas, Chalukyas is the first one to reach this place. Shivaji Maharaj captured this fort in 1648, but he was forced to surrender it to the Mughals in 1665 by the Treaty of Purandar. Shivaji Maharaj recaptured it in 1670 and used it for keeping his treasury. This fort was used to keep the loot from Surat. Later in Peshwa time, Nana Phadanwis used this fort for
living for some time.
There are many places to see on the fort. The first entrance door is known as Ganesh darwaja (Lord Ganesh entrance gate). Other entrance gates in the sequence are
Narayan darwaja, Hanuman Darwaja and last entrance gate is known as Maha-Darwaja. The highlight of the fort is Vinchukata (Scorpion's tail) which reminds us of 'SanjeevniMachi 'of Rajgad. It is 1500m long & 30m wide part of the mountain, separated from the main part. Viewing from the fort this portion looks like scorpion’s sting and hence it is called 'Vinchu Kata'.
This 'Vinchu Kata' was used for keeping a watch on the nearby area.
There are 2 ways to start trek to Lohagad Fort, one is from Malavali station. After crossing the Express-Highway & reaching Bhaje village we get a straight route to Lohagad. After
walking for 1.5 to 2 hours & turning to the right from `Goumukh Khind` we will reach to Lohagad.
