We drove the “back way” to Raigad Fort (we cut straight across at Nizampur). I told my family that there were a billion Indians who had not seen this part of India. Even the locals at the turn had not heard of traveling this route to Raigad, but the GPS said it could be done.
When we saw the cable car there were a few in the family that had their doubts about going on it.
In the end no one wanted to walk up the mountain.
What an incredible cable car experience.
It felt like we were going straight up
View was amazing from the cable car.
This side shows the mountains we drove over from Nizambad
Once on top Raigad Fort is very impressive
What an incredible place for Shivaji to have his capital
We did not stay long considering how difficult the drive was to reach here.
We returned the conventional Raigad Road- Mahad- Mangoan- Mulshi Dam route. It was three times as long and we went 3 times as fast. Took about same time. No regrets on arriving the unconventional route.
