Welcome to Raigad Ropeway!

"Fort Raigad is much more than a mere tourist spot. It is a sacred place of pilgrimage, which has left an imprint of the grand vision of Hindavi Swarajya as cherished by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj."
 

Fort Raigad was the capital of the most illustrious Maratha sovereign, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. It is a monument of his prophetic vision of Hindavi Swarajya. It has been described by European historians as 'The Gibraltar of the East'. Various landmarks have lent it the credo of 'Shivtirth'. The sheer vertical rock face tearing into the sky above appears defiant and insurmountable.

Raigad Ropeway
 

 
 

The Ropeway traverses a diagonal length of 760 mtrs and a steep ascent of 420 mtrs, in 4 minutes flat! Gone are the days of torturous foots slogging of some 3 hours over 1450 steps. By the Ropeway, one reaches the top of the Fort through the whistling winds & clouds, completely fresh. Lush green flora criss-crossed with waterfalls and steep peaks is a Dream Land of immense beauty in a hiker's paradise!!
