Rajmachi Camping Lonavala
Camping is usually a time when you go back to basics and enjoy simple pursuits such as reading, watching stars, hiking, swimming and playing games together as a group. Camping offers peace and quiet and relaxing atmosphere, helps to get close to nature.
Rajmachi Fort contains Shrivardhan and Manoranjan two separate forts known as Balle Killa. There is one small plateau in between them. A temple of 'Bhairoba' is very beautiful. Shrivardhan Fort is Bale killa of Rajmachi. It is almost 3000 feet high. But it was mainly built to keep watch on Konkan area. Manoranjan Fort is 2700 feet high. Manoranjan consists of strong walls, 3 doors and many water tanks. One can see Ulhas river, Dukes Nose (Nagphani), Karnala, Matheran, Mahuli and Bhimashankar etc. The old caves of 'Kondhavi' on Rajmachi fort are worth to see. The way to the fort is long but truly with a good view.
