About Rajgad:

The Rajgad Fort is located around 60 km (37 mi) to the south-west of Pune and about 15 km (9.3 mi) west of Nasrapur in the Sahyadris range. The fort lies 1,400 m (4,600 ft) above the sea level. The diameter of the base of the fort was about 40 km (25 mi) which made it difficult to lay siege on it, which added to its strategic value. The fort’s ruins consist of palaces, water cisterns, and caves. This fort was built on a hill called Murumbadevi Dongar (Mountain of the Goddess Murumba). Rajgad holds the record of the highest number of days stayed by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj on any fort.

About Torna:

Torna: Torna fort is amongst the tallest forts around Pune. A difficult trek, the trek to Torna however is one of the most satisfying treks for a nature lover. A huge fort, Torna has seen many a war and has been in control of many rulers at different times. Though most parts of the Torna fort is in ruins, the panoramic view the fort offers is well worth the climb up.
Torna fort is the first fort that Shivaji Maharaj captured and that too in his teens! Shivaji Maharaj further renamed it as Torna. Torna fort is also called Prachandgad. One of the tallest forts around Pune Torna fort also is the only fort that Aurangazeb captured in a real war!
