Rajmachi Monsoon Trek
Rajmachi Fort is a popular destination for nature lovers, trekkers and for outdoor campers. In rainy season from mid-June to mid-October, this region is all the more beautiful with clouds, silvery water falls, streams, lush green forests and meadows. Local families at Udhewadi on Fort Rajmachi welcome trekkers and nature lovers. The local families provide food and camping accommodation to the tourists. The tourism has enabled the local community to give up traditional occupations like agriculture and cattle rearing.
Rajmachi can be approached via two routes,
Via Lonavala and Via Karjat.
The route from Lonavala is almost a plain walk till the base village - Udhewadi.
Though lengthy, it is a walk on the plains, approximately 15km from Lonavala. We will be taking the Lonavala route while going and descend via Karjat route , our jeep will drop us half way from where we need to trek.
The Karjat route is about 7km, but the height gain is approximately 600mt within a short distance. We will be descending via this route. Lonavala on the other hand is gradual with 15km to be covered and just 250mt of height gain.
