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.

Another jewel of the trek on my sleeves. This trek to Rajgad Fort was one with the best experience that I can share with you all. To tell you something about Rajgad Fort. This fort was to be one of the crucial forts that Maratha empire possessed. This fort was from where Shivaji Maharaj used to control his empire. Rajgad Fort had some strategic importance which made it standout from other forts in the region. This fort was never able to won by any other enemy to Maratha empire.
