About Visapur fort

Visapur fort is the sister fort of Lohagad, and is considered an easy trek, especially suitable for beginners and families. It rises to an elevation of 3500 feet, and is close to Lonavala. The fort was built by the Peshwas in the early 1700s, but is not as well preserved as Lohagad fort. However, the trek is fun and offers great views, making it perfect for a quick weekend getaway from Mumbai or Pune.

You’ll have a mostly easy trail, with some steep sections that even first-timers will be able to manage. If you’re going in the monsoon and it’s raining, be prepared to be drenched. Towards the top, there are rock-cut steps to the summit, and these often form a path for gushing rainwater draining from the top.

Along the route, you’ll be able to see Pavna lake, and the surrounding green landscape. The ramparts are fairly intact, but the structures inside are destroyed. However, you’ll still be able to explore caves, ancient carvings, broken cannons, secret passages, and water cisterns.

Best time to visit Visapur fort:The Visapur fort trek is best in the monsoon. The forests around turn green and lush, and the cloudy skies make a wonderful backdrop for photos.

What to carry for the Visapur trek: For your Visapur fort trek, you should take appropriate rainwear and trekking shoes. Do carry your essentials like water, snacks, insect repellent, first aid kit, and camera in a small day pack. Don’t forget to pack a rain cover for your bag, or pack your belongings in plastic to protect it from getting wet. Also, carry a change of dry clothes and a long-sleeved jacket or sweatshirt to keep you warm on your return.
