    Icon2 Raigad Fort Bike Ride with Wife and overnight stay on fort

    Raigad Fort Bike Ride with Wife and Overnight Stay on Fort

    I love Forts and love to explore more and more forts. so me and wife went to Raigad Fort. Raigad is the only fort in maharashtra, which has a resort on the fort. it has two resorts, one of MTDC and one of raigad ropeway. there is a very good ropeway also for those not willing to walk/trek/climb. it is best to visit during monsoon. it is also one of the very few maratha forts with lot of structures still remaining. It is quite a big fort if you want to cover all the parts. we went to raigad from pune via tamhini ghats and returned via varandha ghat.

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.


    THE END

    We reached Raigad base in the afternoon, roamed around, was very hungry, so had some snacks and tea etc.. then purchased the tickets of ropeway and started our ascent, it was extremely good, to travel through clouds in a ropeway as the fort is situated at a very good height.
