Lohagad Fort (aka ‘Lohgad Fort’) is located right near Malavali village (on the outskirts of Lonavala), which you can reach either by local train, or by car – it’s just under a 2hr (around 65km) drive from Pune. The fort is accessible by steps and is most popular for trekking because of the steep incline. Some of the structures like the walls and ramparts are still intact, which make it a popular tourist attraction, and great for taking photos. We think it’d make for a great monsoon-destination trek with your squad (more on that here). There are food stalls and snacks available at the foot of the fort, but beware of wild monkeys!
