Rajmachi, a small village amidst the rugged hills of Sahyadri, is a popular trekking point. It has two forts – Shrivardhan and Manoranjan with roaring waterfalls, enchanting meadows, bloomy forests and streams around it forming a vibrant landscape.
Rajmachi is 15km from Lonavala and Khandala and serves as an ideal place to relax amidst tranquility. One can pitch camps at Kalbhairavnath Temple to spend a night. The Shrivardhan Fort is worth exploring if the thought of finding secret tunnels excites the explorer inside you.
For the more adventurous, head from Kondivade village near Karjat for an exhilarating climb of 2,000 feet. Keep your camera ready, because the trek offers great opportunities for photography. You can also relish some authentic Maharashtrian cuisine in the few restaurants serving food.
Best time to visit Rajmachi is from November to June
