Rajgad is the place if you love, adore and want to relive history at every point in your life. The views are stunning and since we went after the monsoons, the whole landscape was filled with grass, vines and flowers of many colours! It was simply beautiful. The tour leaders were also very helpful and well informed.

The trek was ok but the weather played spoilsport... we expected the trek leaders to be forewarned about this. Anyway, the natural beauty played the perrfect compensation for the harsh sun!

Beauty of this trek is you have combination of all thrilling ingredients. Long patches of dense forest, steep rocky terrain, great height, scenic valleys, rustic old temple & caves for dwelling. You will get many breath taking views of nature as you climb on. The best period to visit is Sep. & early Oct. Also you can be rest assured that your trip will be very cost effective as NO hi-fi resorts, fancy food, car transfers are present here.

The perfect escape from the city life and dreary and dust filled landscapes!! Rajgad has always been my favorite amongst all the forts around Pune. Having built models of it as a child and all! :) Thanks to the leaders for lending us such a happy and memorable time atop the fort and the whole trek.

Rajgad Fort, was an incredible experience but then the best season to visit is Monsoons. Plus the royal feel it gives just gives you goosebumps.Heard a lot of interesting stories about the place from the guides.Really good tour to take.
