Yuvashakti is organizing a monsoon trek of Rajmachi on this weekend.
Rajmachi consists of two beautiful peaks namely ‘Shrivardhan’ and ‘Manaranjan’. Rajmachi is very famous fort near twin hill stations in Maharashtra – Lonavala and Khanadala. Rajmachi fort is nearby 18/20 Kms from Lonavala but a nice way to reach the fort is from Tungarli Lake. This trek is very good for the beginners.
Shrivardhan and Manaranjan can also be considered as two separate forts. There is one small platue in between 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 – Manaranjan 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 truly with a good view. One can enjoy a nice forest, Tungarli lake and many waterfalls as well. Truly, Rajmachi is one of the good places to visit around Pune. And the trekkers especially the beginners enjoy the way to fort.
