    Go On A Trek & Set Up A Night Camp At Vichitragad Fort, Two Hours From Pune

    Avirat posted on 31 August

    What Is It?

    Weekends sometimes seem too short and so you might find yourself looking for getaways close to the city. Which is why we’ve discovered is the quaint and lesser known; Vichitragad a.k.a Rohida Fort, just a two-hour drive/ride away from Pune.

    How Do I Get There?

    The various sources to get to Bhor are through road and rail, but to really absorb the rusticness of this place we’d recommend an adventurous bike ride for which you can hire a bike from Wheel Street, starting at INR 75 per hour. You can take the bikes till the foothills of the fortress and from there trek {which takes only an hour to the top} to the main entrance of the fort.

    What Is So Awesome About It?

    Vichitragad fort isn’t among the very popular forts around the city and hence it’s serene, less crowded, peaceful and most importantly, clean! The fact that it is peaceful makes it our greatest reason of spending weekends here. The most attractive part of this fort is the second gate which has each of its sides adorned with elephant heads}. The views from Vichitragad are breathtaking with steady and soothing cool breezes through the day.

    Anything Else?

    The fort is an amazing spot for nature lovers and history enthusiasts. The rock-cut tanks offer naturally cold water which is surprisingly refreshing. Also, with the permission of the fort officials, one can set up a night camp on the fort itself.

    #LBBTip

    With the obvious tips of carrying water, snacks, etc., we’d advise that, once you reach the fort, ask any local resident to make some delicious food, which they’d happily make for you and that too, in a typical rural style.
