At 2710 Ft, Rajmachi is a twin peaked fort guarding the Bhor Ghat. Situated at a distance of about 20 kms from Khandala, the fort appears to be very near all the time. The higher peak is known as Shreevardhan, and the lower one – Manoranjan(event photo: entrance to the lower fort). The village of Rajmachi is at the base of the lower fort. Shreevardhan has a grand view of the Shirota Lake, while from Manoranjan, one can see the Mumbai Pune trains chugging up the ghat.

The Sahyadris are relatively safe for trekking. Most of the accidents in these mountains have been due to the foolhardiness of humans. It is very easy to prevent any kind of unfortunate accidents by using plain simple common sense and avoiding unnecessary risks and bravado. Always respect Mother Nature.
Trekking is as much a team sport as it is an individual activity. While all team members do help out each other, at the same time it is also necessary not to be a burden on someone by taking unnecessary risks. While every care has been taken to ensure safety, Trekventures cannot be held responsible for any accident, illness and such other unforeseen eventualities.
Avoid littering! Kindly ensure all city waste is carried back or disposed off appropriately.
SMOKING, CONSUMPTION OF LIQUOR AND DRUGS IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED DURING THE TREK.
