We at Wild Rangers Would like to invite you for our one day trek to Lohgad.
Lohgad is part of the Western Ghats. It is located to the southwest of the larger Visapur fort. The range divides the basins of the Indrayani and Pavana rivers. Lohgad overlooks the Pavana reservoir, located to the south of the mountain. The hill extends to the northwest to a fortified spur, called Vinchukata (Scorpion’s tail) because of its resembling shape. The four large gates of Lohgad are still in good condition and reasonably intact.
The fort as seen from its base during monsoon
During the monsoon, the top of the fort is covered with mist and clouds and becomes particularly wet with growing moss. The roads and trails leading to the hill are quite slippery at this time of the year and precautions are necessary to be taken while venturing the routes.
