Pisola Fort is located in the heart of Taharabad taluka in Nashik district of Maharashtra.

Let me tell you, this fort is one of the most underrated treasures of the region. Sure, it may be in ruins, but that’s just the beginning of its charm!

Standing tall at an elevation of 3500 feet, it promises a breathtaking view that’ll make your heart skip a beat. Sure, it takes an hour of trekking to reach the top, but trust me, the journey is as delightful as the destination.

Now, let’s dive into the juicy bits of Pisola Fort’s history. It dates back several centuries, and its formation is still unknown. But hey, it’s safe to say that it has been a significant place in Maharashtra since the medieval period. The fort is surrounded by farm fields and lush vegetation that adds to its beauty.

As for the fort’s structure, the only intact structure is a small mosque on the western edge. The pleasure palace of Rang Mahal stands tall with its walls fallen to ruins, giving it a rustic and rugged appeal. And let’s not forget the two rock-cut water cisterns on the scarp near the entrance with rock-cut figures of Nandi Bull and Lingams.

While trekking to the top, you’ll come across two temples managed by farmers living near the mountains. And yes, the fort is surrounded by dense jungle, so be prepared to encounter some hostile animals. But hey, don’t worry, they usually avoid contact with humans. And if they do spot you, they won’t hesitate to attack. Just kidding, don’t let that scare you away!

In conclusion, Pisola Fort may be less visited, but it’s undoubtedly one of the most beautiful forts in Maharashtra. So, grab your backpacks and head over to Wadi Pisola, the base village of the fort, which is 35 km from Satana. And if you’re lucky, you might just stumble upon a hidden treasure or two along the way. Happy trekking!
