A brief history:

 

 

The Visapur fort was originally built by Bahmani rulers and with the passage of time it went into the hands of the Mughals and the Marathas who were in constant conflict with each other over its possession. Later in the 18th century it came under the British rule.

 

 

The Visapur Fort trek is a one day trek accessible from both Mumbai and Pune. It shares a common ground with the trail to Lohgad Fort. Many trekkers prefer to turn towards Lohgad as the trail is simple and well marked.

 

 

But in case of Visapur the trek is a bit of confusion as the fort looks intimidating from below and there are huge boulders and rocky paths all the way up to the fort.

 

 

Furthermore, the trail isn’t marked properly, which makes it even more difficult to find an entry into the fortified plateau. So, the Visapur trek is for those gutsy trekkers, who won’t fret about getting lost and enjoy every moment of the experience.

 

 

Experienced trekkers can go for a twin treks i.e. Lohagad and Visapur trek or Vispaur and Lohagad on the same day.

 

 

Camping info:

 

During monsoon ideally avoid camping as it can be dangerous unless you are part of an expert group of trekkers and campers. Winters are the ideal time for camping at the fort if you have the required camping gear.
