  1. Pictures are very beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Lohagad Fort or the Iron Fort is certainly one of the most spectacular sightseeing spots in the twin hill stations of Khandala and Lonavala. The narrow, zig zag steps leading up to the fort are estimated to be about 500 in number. Check out all best places to visit near Pune also.
