The route starts from the Katraj Tunnel Top (Old) travels through a series of mountains and hills (approx. 15) and approximately (13 km) which leads to the destination the Top of Sinhgad Fort.

It\’s Time to Review…
Katraj to Singhgad encore! I never tire from climbing the same hills again and again. It’s some 13 odd hills up and down. Have lost count on how many times I’ve done it and will do it again. It’s a good way to measure if my strength and stamina is better or same or worse.
Most loving scene was d night view of Pune from top of the hills..??
Overall it\’s amazing & enjoyable Trek with sgtrekkers as usual… SGians ?
Thanks for organising this trek..
