Lohagad fort is a formidable fort near Pune.  Lohagad makes an ideal trekking destination for trekkers from Pune and Mumbai because of its  accessibility, 

ease of the trek and lush green surroundings. Lohagad at 3400 ft is a wide spread fort. There are 4 doors to Lohagad from the nearby village Lohagadwadi. 

Lohagad divides the basins of the Indrayani and Pavna.  The view is stunning with a signature ‘vinchu Kata’ (Scorpio Tail) shaped fort

 

 

Lohagad has a long & stirring history. It was ruled by many dynasties right from Satavahans, Chalukyas, Nizamshahi, Mughals to the Great Maratha King 

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Shivaji Maharaj captured the fort in 1648 right after conquering Torna. Netaji Palkar was given the responsibility of 

looking after the fort. Lakshmi Kothi was used to store the treasure raided from Surat.  In the treaty of Purandar 1665, Lohagad was lost to Aurangzeb, 

under Mirzaraje Jaysingh.  Shivaji Maharaj Recaptured this fort in 1670. Aurangzeb recaptured it after Shivaji Maharaj’s death in 1700 and after the 

Peshwas it finally went in hands of Colonel power.
