Rajmachi Fort

Surrounded by beautiful waterfalls, Rajmachi Fort is a nature lovers’ paradise. It was built by the Satavahanas and later captured by Shivaji Maharaj in 1657. The fort has two citadels – Shrivardhan and Manoranjan, with a wide plateau surrounding them. The fort provides a spectacular view, of the waterfalls, lush green forests, and hills. A Shiva temple and a big water reservoir constructed in 1780 are the two key attractions inside the fort. The rainy season from mid-June to mid-October is the best time to visit Rajmachi Fort, as the region looks beautiful with clouds and greenery everywhere.

You can drive up to the Udhewadi village, and from there you can trek for 20-30 minutes to reach the fort. If you want full-fledged trekking experience, we recommend starting from Kondana Caves; the hike will take around 3-4 hours.

  • Distance from Pune – Around 168 km via NH 48
