Raigad is capital of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Maratha empire. Please is quiet high, if go for picnic and group it is enjoyable. If you like history or not, I will say everybody must visit to Raigad at least once in life.

Rainy season is the best time to visit this location. There are two ways you can reach the top of the fort which is almost 1 km above sea level, one being the stairs and other rope way. I would advise stairs to climb and rope to get down. The stairs are steep so we avoided them while getting down.

An absolutely delightful place. Please take a guide along once you have negotiated a price, as it helps to have background on different parts of the fort. Once done, you can ask the guide to leave and stroll about on your own. Take the rope way to the top if climbing is an issue, there are about 1500 odd stairs... More

The amount of energy and Thrilling experience this fort gives during trekking is awesome. The best part of this place is that there are Very less people on the fort. The peace and silence around the fort are divine. The fort is very beautiful and not in very good shape still its name Rajgad truly stand by its name.
