HolidayIQ Reviewer Jai Day adds, “Awesome trek With a group of around 20 people we went to Lohagad for Monsoon trekking. It is near Lonavala, if you are going by train then Malavli is the station to get off. By road, the Mumbai-Pune express highway can take you there. The vehicle can go up to Bhaje village. After that, you can trek till the fort. It will take around one hour. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Irfan Ansari shares, “Where religion and adventure meet Rishikesh is a religious place with lots of temples and a clean Ganga river. As I visited the place I started seeing lots of sadhus and yogis in saffron dhoti and a lot of them were doing sadhana (meditation) on the banks of Ganga River. This place is a lot different from other religious places like Varanasi, et. This place is clean and neat with dustbin every 100 meters near the main touristy area which is 'Lakshman Jhula'.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Dharmesh Kumar shares, “Fun in trekking all along and go well equipped One of the most amazing forts to go for, the capital of Shivaji Maharaj's kingdom, the best time is the rainy season, with a group of friends. One should get ready to get all wet, phones, wallets should be kept aside. Morning breakfast compulsory even though there are some vada pav stalls available at the foot of the fort.” Read Full Review 

HolidayIQ Reviewer Kaustubh Phatak adds, “Excellent fort to visit Shivaji Maharaj has made this fort his capital in 1674 when he was crowned King of the Maratha Kingdom which later developed into the Maratha Empire eventually covering the majority of modern-day India. You can access the fort by Cable car, however, the trekking is my preferred route. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Ca sampadaborkar adds, “A place that awakens your soul A casual vacation to Bangalore landed me to this place. Make sure you reach there well before the sunrise to witness changing colours of the sky and that process which makes you question everything of your existence. That connect with nature like never before. We reached there before 6 am and had the experience to cherish for the lifetime. trekking there would be the best but otherwise, the car takes you to the top with nominal entry fee.” Read Full Review 

HolidayIQ Reviewer Kumar day adds, “Ok and watchable Fort Tipu's Fort is one part of Nandi Hills. Tipu's Fort is ok and it's watchable. But in Nandi Hills sightseeing is good and relaxed. Here trekking and cycling are famous. If you go to Nandi Hills through bike or cycle you are very thrilled because of a curved road up and down.” Read Full Review

It's just 15 min trek from the Harishchandragad, so you can reach Konkan Kada before the sunset. You can just sit at the edge (at your own risk, as its an 18, 000 ft. Vertical fall), look at the sunset, feel its beauty, and also you may cry, and just let it all out. ” Read Full Review
