The Visapur Fort stands tall as an epitome of strength of Maratha rulers and their much celebrated kingdom. The trek becomes a bit difficult in the rainy seasons because of the waters flowing over the stairs but that is what makes it unique. there are primarily three starting point for the trek to the fort- one from Patan Village, one from Bhaje Caves and the third one from Gaimukh Khind. The lush greenery and the trapezium shaped mountains will blow your mind with their panoramic beauty.
If you're visiting Mumbai on a monsoon weekend, what is that one thing you would not miss doing? I may have missed marine drive, but the western ghats made up for it. The view from atop he visapur fort on an overcast afternoon is all I needed to make the gruelling week worth it. The Visapur fort trek is one of the perfect one day getaways from Mumbai, it also lies very close to Lonavla. Five of us set off from Pune/ Mumbai for Lonavla, our end goal being the summit of the lesser known Visapur fort not far from Lohagad fort.
