Itinerary:

Begin your day with a prompt pick-up from your Pune city hotel, setting off for a thrilling full-day excursion to the historic Raigad Fort, situated approximately 140 kilometers away.

Nestled atop the Sahyadri mountain range, Raigad Fort stands proudly at an impressive altitude of around 820 meters. Accessible primarily from one side via a pathway adorned with about 1737 steps, the fort is ensconced by steep valleys on its other three sides. Alternatively, you can opt for the exhilarating ropeway ride, which offers a bird's-eye view of the surrounding landscapes.

Raigad Fort holds great significance in Maratha history, symbolizing valor and audacity. It's a revered pilgrimage site, bearing the indelible marks of Chhatrapati Shivaji's grand vision of Hindavi Swarajya. While time has left most of its parts in ruins, the fort narrates the tale of Maratha bravery and resilience. After capturing Raigad Fort, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj transformed it into the capital of the Maratha kingdom. The British, recognizing its formidable defenses, named it the "Gibraltar of the East." Explore the fort's intriguing gates, including Nagarkhana Darwaja, Mena Darwaja, Maha Darwaja, and Palkhi Darwaja. Don't miss the statue of Shivaji erected in front of the main market avenue, leading to his own Samadhi and that of his loyal dog.

After an enriching day of exploration, drive back to Pune, where you will be dropped off at your hotel.

This tour promises a captivating blend of history, adventure, and breathtaking mountain vistas, immersing you in the legendary tales of the Maratha empire.
