HolidayIQ Traveller Mihir Mandrekar says, “Have climbed the fort thrice in three different seasons right from the base of the hill before the right turn to pavna. The trek is largely easy but gets quite intimidating towards the end near Vinchu Kaata. Best season is definitely monsoon when the top of the hill is entirely covered in clouds. The view is mesmerizing giving a panoramic view of lonavala to the west, pavna lake to the south and visapur fort to the north. Also a good place to spot snakes in the off season.”

2. Take A Road Trip To Malshejghat
