Escapades Adventure Hiking Trip to Rajmachi Fort (18th July, 2010)

More Abt Rajmachi
Rajmachi is a small village in the rugged mountains of Sahyadri in India. There are two forts which were built by Shivaji Emperor during 17th century. It is a famous spot for trekking. It is a 20-25 km trekking distance from Lonavla. Rajmachi fort is a strategic fort overlooking Borghat(ghat between Mumbai and Pune) which was a historical trade route. Rajmachi peak has two fortified structures – the Shrivardhan fort and Manaranjan fort. Rajmachi can be reached by 2 ways, the tough route from Kondivide village near Karjat and the other easy but long way route from Lonavala. In rainy season this place is filled with giant waterfalls and greenery. We will be taking the easy route.

Shrivardhan and Manaranjan can also be considered as two separate forts. There is one small platue inbetween them. A temple of ”Bhairoba” is very beautiful. Shrivardhan is ”Bale killa” of Rajmachi. It is almost 3000 feet high. But it was mainly built to keep watch on Konkan area. The other – Manoranjan is 2700 feet high. Manaranjan consists of strong walls, 3 doors and many water tanks. One can see Ulhas river, Dukes Nose (Nagphani), Karnala ,Matheran, Mahuli and Bhimashankar etc. The old caves of ”Kondhavi” on Rajmachi fort are worth to see. The way to fort is long but with an excellent view. One can enjoy a nice forest, Tungarli lake and many waterfalls as well.
