...olld walls and some monkeys. Really cool place, worth every (of many) steps walking up the hill! Rewarded by incredible 360 views and, if you are lucky, spotting some grey langoors. There is also a small temple and some shops/small restaurants.

This fort is easily accessible from Mahad and Mahabaleshwar. Drive is quiet scenic and passes through the ghats. One would like to stop and click some photos, but the roads are quiet narrow. Once you reach at the foothill, the parking is quiet less and one may have to park along the road. Small restaurants allow for quick bites. This... More

It is one of the best places to visit in Mahabaleshwar. Placed strategically on a hill-top, the fort was originally built by Maratha rulers in 1665.

The fort is having average gradient and a regular climber can climb it in less than 10 minutes. At the base of the fort, guide facility is available who takes Rs.300/- as charges and the guide would then provide the details about the various places inside the fort. The views from the top of the Fort are beautiful and scenic.

Pratapgadh is about 1 to 1.5 hours drive from mahabaleshwar. It's a ghat drive throughout and the road has bad patches. The final mile to pratapgadh is narrow, bad condition. The parking is limited so people park vehicles on the approach road. We were lucky to get a spot. There is a guide booth at the entrance and the guide... More
