Torna is one of the most favoured trek around Pune. Being the tallest mountain of Pune district, this trek becomes challenging one. Those who want to shift towards slightly tough treks, Torna fort trek is ideal.

More about Torna :-
Torna Fort, also known as Prachandagad, is a large fort located in Pune district, in the Indian state of Maharashtra. It is historically significant because it was the first fort captured by Shivaji Maharaj in 1643, at the age of 16, forming the nucleus of the Maratha empire.

The hill has an elevation of 1,403 metres (4,603 ft) above sea level, making it the highest hill-fort in the district. The name derives from Prachanda (Marathi for huge or massive) and gad (Marathi for fort).The way to the top is moderate to difficult, with some precautions to be taken in the rainy season.

It is a two- or three-hour climb to the “BiniDarwaaja”, the main entrance to the fort.Britishers said “If Sinhagad fort is lions den then Torna is Eagles Nest.Twomachies namely Budhla Machi & Zunjar Machi are main attractions.
