India before it is formed as union of states, it was of maze of over 500 kingdoms. Each kingdom had forts and palace to guard its interest, trade routes, granary and treasuries. These are spread across length and breadth of the country. Among the states, Maharashtra alone has over 400 forts here – some of them grand, inaccessible to conquer even now.

Many of the forts excursion – will be a trekking exercise or a picnic destination, more about history than about any thing.

However, few stand apart and attract tourists for their architecture, adventure and splendid views.
