Pratapgad is a hill fort in Maharashtra. Situated close to the famous hill station of Mahabaleshwar in the district of Satara, the citadel rises to an elevation of about 3500 feet from the ground.
There are as many as four lakes within the fort. The trekkers may choose to carry their own water supply with them.
1) The hill station of Mahabaleshwar lies just 25 kilometres from Pratapgad. Paying a visit to the place would be a good idea.
There are several restaurants in and around the fort which serve good quality food. In addition, homemade food is available in the village of wada from where the motorable road to the base of the fort starts.
There are no clearly defined trails which can be followed in order to reach the top of the fort. There is a motorable road however from the village of Wada which takes us right up to the fort.
