Lohgad trek is one of the easiest treks ideal for beginners and the trek route to Lohgad is more of an easy hike that involves no climbing with stairs at the end of the trail leading to the fort. During the monsoon, the top of the fort is covered with mist and clouds and becomes particularly wet with growing moss. The trek route to Lohgad is pretty much straight forward. You can see a variety of relics on Lohgad including Caves called Laxmi Kothi, Darga, Shiv Temple, Vichukata is one of the most prominent amongst them. Viewing from the fort this portion looks like scorpion’s sting and hence it is called 'Vinchu Kata'. As named, this portion was to keep a watch on the surrounding region The walk on the Vichukata is a lot of fun. In rainy season you can enjoy a lot under many waterfalls.
