Haelo Pune and Mumbai!
Let's trek to the Lohgad fort (Easy trek) and see one of the most beautiful valleys of lower Sahyadris with beautiful Pawna lake as a backdrop. There are many interesting things to explore on top of this Scorpion shaped fort. It's a huge fort that will easily take 2 hours to just explore at the top.
There is a tomb, temple, and some ruins above. There are many different ponds which used to be water supply to the people back then.
Lohgad also has thick ridge walk that will lead trekkers to punishment point - a cliff of the hill (that you see on the event image)
