Lohagad Fort Pune – Good for First Trekking

My upbringing is done in a middle-class family with middle-class values. I mean that like any other girl I have also spent a very safe and secured childhood. Since I was not as mischievous as a child I haven’t participated in anything reckless. But now when I am grown up and working, my interests in getting involved into some adventurous things have increased. So when during our Pune trip I came to know about Lohagad fort Pune, I decided to go there for trekking. But now my parents were not as excited about the idea as they have problems in climbing up steep roads. Thus, I decided to go there by myself.

Our hotel also made arrangements for the sightseeing for the guests and thus, I came to know that a group was going to visit this fort. I immediately decided to join the group and go there. Though my mom was a bit sceptical about me going there with an unknown group, but convincing her was not a tough task to accomplish.

So I was all set to go on my trekking trip. It was really nice going there. Our group has to cross a village called “Bhaje” to reach the fort and on the way we encountered some caves. The walk was definitely a lengthy one but it was fun actually. And a little drizzle made the experience even more enjoyable. My light weight shoes were a great relief as I knew the tiring walk would need a comfortable dress and footwear. A girl of around my age was also there with her friends and was sporting a heeled shoe. I don’t know why some people doesnot wear the attire according to the occasion. For this girl made a ruckus blabbering about her pained feet.

The lush-green and the picturesque beauty of the Lohagad Fort Pune situated on the Sahyadris is something you cannot afford to miss. The whole trekking experience is a memory to be treasured. Lohagad dissects the basins of Indryani and Pavna and provides beautiful species of birds and insects, which proves good for wildlife photography.
