Sinhagad is a fort located near Pune. Shivaji Maharaj named it after his warrior Bajiprabhu who died in the battle. The fort is not well maintained but that doesn't mean you can't have a good time here. The fort has a very important historical significance and majors are being taken to preserve it.


How can you get there?


By Train: The nearest train station is Pune Station. From there you have to go either by bus or car or shared rickshaw.


By Air: The nearest airport is Pune Airport. From there its either bus or cab.


By road: You can go by road either in car or bus or shared rickshaw or by your own bike. The ride is really beautiful.


The road is not that well maintained and there are many potholes but in the end its all worth it.


Local sightseeing -


There are many points you can see on Sinhagad. Since its a fort you can various doors and watch points of that time.


The fort is surrounded by the Sahyadri mountains and the view is amazing for any given point. Sinhagad is a great place to get some quite and peace away from all the city noice. It is a great escape.


Hotels and Accommodation -


Hotels here are not exactly what you [picture a hotel to be. they are actually small hotels set up in a tent. If you are worrying about the quality of the food, don't! the food absolutely delicious and mouth watering.


The menu on the fort is the same no matter where you go: kanda bhaji and zumka bhakar, curd.


People come here for this special menu only. It is something you can't help but want more. You don't complain about there not being variety. The menu available is enough.


The fort is more visited during rainy season as it is a great spot to go and enjoy the monsoon. The clouds are at your feet literally. You get to see the nature like never before and it breathtaking.


This is a one day trip. Before you were not able to stay or camp on the fort but now there is lodge on the fort and you can stay there over night if you want. You have to book the rooms before hand.


Safety -


I have been going to Sinhagad since I was 2 years old or may be before that. I still haven;t had any alarming incident or any kind of worrying incident. The place is safe. You do have to be careful when you are on the edge of the mountain as it is quite a drop. Other than that no issues with the people. People are quite helpful.
