Lohagad fort – means "Iron fort" in Marathi and is situated in Lonavala region It divides the basins of the Indrayani and Pavna and is situated on a side range of the Sahyadris.It is just a couple of hours from Mumbai, Lohgad is one of the best forts to visit during any time of the year.

We couldn't see any top view of lonavala from the fort as clouds were all around us. Best time to come here is in monsoon and thus how we came here Mumbai to lonavala by car and reached the trek start point or you can hire an auto to which take 50 each but while returning they increase their fares.So try to leave early on same cave n fort are not possible unless u have private vehicle .

Total Distnace: ~98 kms from Mumbai

Best time to vist: June-September

We found too much crowd and traffic jam of people while climbing the steps. So please prefer weekdays for visit. Please carry raincoat instead of umbrella as it is of no use because of high wind.

What to see on Lohgad:

Large Gates on the fort

Walls of the fort which are still intact

Beautiful structure of the fort

You can also visit Bhaja and Karla caves on your back

During the monsoons the clouds look spectacular from the fort.

Clicked few pictures as there it started raining. So carry waterproof covers for your cameras.

Happy Trekking !
