Torna (Prachandagad) fort trek: Pictures & Images

Torna (near Pune, India) known as prachanda(huge) gad is a massive fort very close to another grand fort Rajgad. In 1646, when Shivaji was 16, he launched his first military attack by capturing Torna fort, paving the way for the great empire. Many battles have been fought on this fort.
The fort is truly grand and stretches for couple of kilometers. The fort floor looked like a carpet of yellow flowers. The scenes were right out from fairy tale. These kinds of scenery can be observed in sahyadris only during sept - nov period.

Also we were lucky to spot a rare circular rainbow in the valley.
We saw a family consisting of 2 elderly women (1 was in a saree!) trekking up the fort and that should be an inspiration for anyone that trekking is an adventure for all ages and fitness levels.
