Dear Trekkers, Nature Lovers & Photographers,

Sahyavihar Trekkers have organized overnight trek to Rajmachi on 1st-2nd Feb 2014

Rajmachi is a small village in the rugged mountains of Sahyadri. There are two forts which were built by Emperor Shivaji during 17th century.
It is a very famous fort located near two famous hills of Maharashtra, Lonavala and Khanadala. It is about 17 km trekking distance from Lonavala.

Rajmachi is a strategic peak overlooking Borghat (ghat between Mumbai and Pune) which was a historical trade route.
Rajmachi peak has two fortified structures - Shrivardhan fort and Manoranjan fort.
In winter season this place is filled with greenery.
