Kenjalgad Fort

Located on an irregular hilltop, Kenjalgad Fort is a rhomboid fort that can be seen from a long distance as one approaches it. It was built by the Bhoj rulers during the 12th century, and it was later captured by several rulers, with the British finally taking it over in from the Marathas in 1818. And although the fort resembles a derelict façade, as a large part of it was dismantled by the British, its walls are still standing tall, overlooking a beautiful valley. The sight of the clouds covering the fort during the rainy season will leave you awestruck.

The fort isn’t fully accessible by cars due to poor road conditions beyond crossing Bhor village, which is around 25 km from the fort. There are two routes to the fort: one starts from a col joining Kenjalgad and Raireshwar Plateau, and the other from Ghera Kenjal, which serves as the base village.  A reasonable hour-long trek from Ghera Kenjal will lead you to the summit of the plateau. Although the trek route is safe, attention should be paid to the slippery patches in between. It is advisable to carry food and water on the trek owing to the shortage of shops on the route.

  • Distance from Pune: Around 81 km via NH 48
