So rainy season had started and we were planning for quick trek to some nearby fort. After some googling we shortlisted Rohida fort also called Vichitragad as our trek plan on 23rd July 2016. This fort is near bhor about 65km from Pune. Rohida is accessible by state transport bus which has good connectivity till Bhor from Pune swargate bus stand, but we prefer to have a bike ride till the base village Bajarwadi. The trekking path starts from the hillock west of the Bajarwadi Highschool. The route is very safe and wide. There are no trees on the trekking route.

During our visit weather was cloudy with drizzle which made it perfect trek.

It took us around 5hrs starting from Pune and back again, so it makes a good visit if anyone has half a day with him to explore some around pune.
