    Brief Description:

    Rajgad Fort ? The name describes the place itself. The King of all the forts. It is to the south-west 40 Kms from Pune. It boasts the highest number of days stayed by Chhatrapati Shivaji on any fort. He spent almost 25/30 yrs here. Rajgad is famous for its construction. The fort can be divided into four different parts based on geographical terrain and fortification. These are the three sub-plateaux (Machee) namely Padmavati Machee, Suvela Machee and Sanjevani Machee, and at the centre is the Ballekilla               

    Rajgad Fort is the capital of the Maratha resistance under Shivaji. It is surrounded by Sinhagad, Torna Fort and Lingana. We will explore this fort for a few hours.

    Rajgad and Torna Forts are joined by a scenic and often dangerous pathway in the green patches of the Sahyadris. This is some times called the 'King Trek of Sahyadri' for its popularity among backpackers. 

    Torna Fort :- The fort is also known as Prachandagad (huge fort), due to its massive size. In 1646, when Shivaji was 16, he launched his first military attack by capturing Torna fort, paving the way for the great empire. Many battles have been fought on this fort. The fort is truly grand and stretches for couple of kilometres.
