Visapur Fort is a fort in Maharashtra, where you have to trek through gushing water down the steps. That’s one for the realistic bucket list right there.
Well, since you asked, let’s begin. There are twin forts that are very close to Lonavala – Visapur Fort and Lohagad Fort, of which Visapur is the higher fort. The path leading up to the fort is of medium difficulty. During the monsoon season, there is a mini waterfall that you have to trek through on the way to the fort. It was built back in the 17th century by the very first Peshwa of Maratha Empire called Balaji Vishwanath.

How To Get There: This fort is located very close to Lonavala, about 2 hours (close to 98 km) away. You can either drive down to the fort, using the same route as to Lonavala via the Mumbai-Pune expressway. You may also save the money, and hop on to a train which departs from Dadar and CST to Lonavala, and then take a local train to Malavali, which is a 5 km walk or rickshaw ride from Visapur.
