Height: 3400/3567 Feet above MSL(Approx) Grade: Easy District: Pune Region: Lonavala Base Village: Lohagadwadi Lohagad: This is one of the most interesting forts to visit as it still has its fortification and doorways in pristine condition. The fort dates back to the Satvahan Era and was mainly used to keep a watch on the trade route passing through the Sahyadris. As one starts ascending the fort, 4 massive doors have to be crossed namely Ganesh Darwaza, Narayan Darwaza, Hanuman Darwaza, & Maha Darwaza. The top of the fort is expansive and has a huge lake built by Nana Phadnis. The most interesting feature of this fort is the 'Vinchu Katta', which stretches for almost 2 kms and is slightly detached from the fort. The end of this katta has a bastion which was used for keeping a watch on the region. As the name itself suggest, the 'Vinchu Katta' when viewed from the top of the fort resembles a Scorpions Sting.
