Being accessible from both Mumbai and Pune, Sudhagad is a perfect weekend trek that you can accomplish in 1 day. Sudhagad is a hill fort located in the Western Ghats of Maharashtra. A fort that was captured by the Marathas in 1657 and renamed from ‘Bhorapgad’ to ‘Sudhagad’, which means – ‘the sweet one’.
Sudhagad is almost a replica of Raigad. Surprisingly, Sudhagad was also considered to be chosen as the capital of Shivaji’s Empire before Raigad. However, Raigad received the title because of its central location.
Situated at a height of 600 meters, Sudhagad is surrounded by steep cliff. One can also see other forts like Sarasgad, Korigad, Dhangad, Taila – Baila from the top.
A place that was once ruled by the kings of the colonial times, Sudhagad is a must see for all those who love nature with a tinge of history sprinkled over it!

- Transport from Thane to Thane
