Lohagad or the Iron Fort is a typical choice if it’s your first trek considering the easy grade. However, it doesn’t disappoint experienced climbers either, thanks to the inviting weather and the lush green scenery during monsoons. Loaded with a rich historical significance, the Lohagad trek surely deserves a place in your bucket list this season!
Exploring the fort
Vinchu Kata or the Scorpion’s tail-like fortification structure
Ancient Malawli and Bhaje caves near the fort
Durgah located near the Maha-darwaja
One of the easiest fort treks in the Sahyadris, Lohagad is a promising adventure nevertheless. Its sturdy walls, gigantic gates and stone-cut stairs form a unique design that can be observed from above.
The ‘Vinchu kata’ or the scorpion’s tail-like structure of the fort is what sets it apart from other forts in the vicinity. Ancient buddhist caves of Malawli and Bhaje can be seen on the way to the fort. Other than this, the fort also has a Durgaah and a Laxmi Kothi that can be explored.
Lohagad Fort is situated in Lonavala and can be accessible after a trek from its base village- Lohagadwadi.
