"Worst place ever to visit. Roads r f***ed. I think i might need to have a back surgery. I was so tired by the time i reached the fort, i didnt even climb it. No offense. I cannot judge the place without actually being there. But the experience was horrible."

"I wouldnt write too much about the fort and history as I think others have already well covered it. If you are coming from Pune side, there are couple interesting routes you can take which roadies would certainly appreciate. 1) Hit on old highway, about an 5-7 kms after your first toll, keep looking for kamshet-pavananagar road, cross the borr ghat , enroute visit Bedse caves and reach lohgad. 2) From chandni chowk, take the mulshi road, cross the ghotawade Phata then come to paud Phata and turn right near the market you should be on the Kolvan Road now keep going straight and you will find Pavna dam on your left go little further and you should be at Lohagad"
