Rajmachi at a distance of 55 km from Pune and just 20 km from Lonavala is famous for trekking. Known for its natural beauty, Rajmachi has exotic scenery as well as historic sites. Comprising of two peaks viz. Shrivardhan and Manaranjan; and the famous Rajmachi Fort for trekking, this destination attracts many adventurous travellers.
Rajmachi Fort surrounded by deep valleys from three sides and a thickly wooded lush green forest on the other can be reached only by foot. Though climb is steep at some points, it is worth for the splendid view from the top of the fort.
One has to trek from Lonavala or Karjat,
each about 20 km from Rajmachi. It is easily accessible from Karjat.
Shared autos will take you to Kondivade village, from where the trek
starts. The route is beautiful but has a steep climb at places.
During and just after monsoons is the ideal time to visit Rajmachi to witness the nature at its most pristine best. Dr Modia's Health Resort and Satya Health Farm are two good places (both in Karjat) to stay near Rajmachi.

There is no place to stay in rajmachi but statying at huts of villagers is good experience.
Althoogh it is steep to go to Rajmachi from Karjat it is enjoyable . It is very boring walk from Khandala (Place near lonavala) to rajmachi. You may come across couple of waterfalls but pretty much walk on plataeu.
