Feel The Natural Beauty of Raigad

I, Raigad Fort is a hill fortress situated in the Raigad district of Maharashtra in India. I was built by the Maratha king Chatarrpati Shivaji in 1674 when he was made King of a Maratha Kingdom. Later I was concerted as an important place for the Maratha Empire and now I am covering majority of modern day India.

    One of the finest forts of Maratha empire which is well restored by the Maharashtra government, you should visit once before you die, the scenery is mesmerizing from the fort, please don’t go by ropeway otherwise you will miss the moment of your life. Trekking is for adults and kids, plz don’t smoke or drink before trek which will lead u to the respiratory problem and you will feel faint at some point, trekking is quite difficult as steps are quite big, so avoid the trek if u have a problem with your body.
    Carry your DSLR camera to capture the phenomenal moment. carry a water bottle and throw in the dustbin. Wear only flat shoes ( no sandals or slipper). You should Hire guide which will give u correct info about the fort. Price of guide Rs. 300-500 on the fort so bargain with them.
