Are you a beginner in search of a trek? Then this route will motivate you to indulge in treks in the future. This route will help you a lot in building up that confidence you need. Small vendors on the way, where you'll get food, water and any other beverages you need apart from the booze. There are lots of ups and downs, straight and curved roads but that's worth the prize that awaits at the top. Walk through flora and fauna, fort on the left and pawna lake on the right.... Beautiful.

Also known as the 'Iron Fort'. 3389.ft above sea level gives you a spectacular view of Visapur Fort and the Pawna Lake. Apart from this you'll enjoy the wind and if it rains then you'll have the icing on the cake. Temple (small shrine), well, waterfalls and monkeys you'll find once your on the top. You'll get hypnotized with the beauty of the fort and wish not to leave it. You won't find anything to eat on top but everything is available at the foot of the fort. Built on the western ghats, with huge rock blocks. And one question that bugged me, as to how did they bring it up top in those days?

Also known as 'Scorpion Sting' as it resembles the scorpion sting, located on the other side of the Lohagad Fort. Covered with lush green patches all over it, and has two ways to reach the end, one through the trek trail that's on the left side and the other is to climb through the rocks in the front, the latter is tough and one wrong move, you'll see stars in the day light. Once you reach the bottom, you'll love it. lush green grass and the mind and body moving wind that blows you off. Sit on the end of the sting, and enjoy the view with coolest breeze.
