About the trek:
The fort is 42 km to the south west of Pune, about 15–16 km west of Nasrapur, in the Sahyadris range. 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 the central volcanic plug called Ballekilla (meaning “small fort”).
To the north one can see Sinhagad with its marked television tower. To the west lie Torna Fort, the pinnacle fort Lingana and, down in Konkan, Raigad.
To the east one can see the twin forts of Purandar and Vajragad (Rudramal).
This fort is built on the hill called “Murumb Devacha Dongar” Rajgad boasts the highest number of days stayed by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj on any fort.
