About the Event

The Katraj to Sinhagad night trek is a popular trekking trail near Pune, Maharashtra, India. The trek starts from the Katraj tunnel and goes all the way up to the Sinhagad fort. The trail involves crossing more than 10 mountains and covers a distance of approximately 16 km. The trek is challenging and requires physical fitness, but the beautiful views and the thrill of trekking at night make it worth the effort.

The best time to do this trek is during the full moon, as the moonlight adds to the beauty of the trek. The trek starts from Katraj tunnel at midnight and takes around 6-7 hours to reach the Sinhagad fort. The trail passes through dense forests, steep rocky patches.

The steep climbs at the beginning of the trek might be challenging, but the beautiful night view of the Mumbai Pune expressway from the top of the hill will definitely make it worth the effort. After the trek, we will be traveling by a hired jeep to Askarwadi and have breakfast before boarding the bus to Pune
