Very beautiful during monsoon as well as to experience sunset/sunrise. There is option to reach to the top using 1000s of steps or in 4 minutes by rope way (gandola ride).

Raigadh was the capital of Maratha Empire of the then King Shivaji, well known as Shivaji Maharaj of Maharashtra. It is one of the tough Forts to quonquer, situated in the western ghats of Sahyadri Ranges.

The bike trip to Raigad from pune itself was amazing with incredible views on the way. The fort can be scaled or can go through ropeway. Even ruins of the fort were good and some places were amazing. Worth a visit.

You can get upto the Cable car counter but it may not be possible to climb up the fort unless you lift with the person in the wheel chair. Not advisable
