Trekking from Rajgad to Raigad is a challenging and adventurous endeavour, covering a significant distance through the Sahyadri mountain range in Maharashtra, India. The trek is often undertaken by experienced trekkers who enjoy long-distance trekking and want to explore the historical forts of Rajgad and Raigad in a single journey.

The trek from Rajgad to Raigad involves traversing the Sahyadri mountain range, which may include ascending and descending various peaks and valleys. Trekkers can pass through intermediate points, other forts, villages, and scenic spots along the way.
