Rajmachi Fort

Rajmachi is the place where one can experience immense surrounding natural beauty of the Mother Nature. It is the best place to visit, if you are a nature lover. Rajmachi Trek is the trek between Lonavala and Karjat, which are the two popular hill stations of Maharashtra.

The trek is a 16 km long trek, where you can not only enjoy the scenaries and view points, but also can feel the sight of Waterfalls. River Ulhasnagar streams it’s water droplets from the gaps of the mountains and hills.

The fort is at an elevation of 2750 ft. Kondhana Caves can be found as a special attraction. Rajmachi consists of 2 forts, Shivadharan and Manaranjan. So, all the brave folks, trek lovers and mountain climbers will explore the heritage of these historical forts of Maharashtra.

As you trek, you experience inner peace, and you can also experience the touch and connectivity of the basic elements of nature (Air, Water, Earth, Fire). As you go farther from the land and climb the mountains, you not only leave your footprints, but also leave your sorrows and continue trekking.

The first place you would reach is the Kondhana Caves. It is easy to trek here, where you reach the caves only in an hour with no difficulty. These Buddhist Caves can be reached by descending from Rajmachi village. The construction, architecture and the wooden pattern are remarkable and notable.

From there, you can also find a water body ( River Ulhas) which is 500 mtrs from the caves and very refreshing. “You don’t drown by falling in the water, you drown by staying there”. After spending some quality time, you will continue trekking until the dawn.Then, you will reach the village called Udhewadi, a small village at the higher altitudes, where we can stay for the night.
