Pune District authorities witness rise in trekking after reopening of forts and tourist spots

Published on : Tuesday, November 24, 2020

Pune District authorities have witnessed a conspicuous rise in trekking activity after the historic forts and tourist spots like Sinhagad, Rajgad, Torna, Lohagad, Visapur, among others, were reopened from the first week of November.


The administration had shut down these forts in March due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Pune district collector Rajesh Deshmukh said, “Visitors and trekkers must strictly follow the Covid-19 guidelines while enjoying their visit to the forts. We are constantly reviewing the situation through our tehsil administration. For now, the situation (spread of infection) is fairly under control.”


Pune has almost 60 forts spread across Bhor, Velhe, Maval, Mulshi, Khed, Ambegaon and Junnar tehsils. Trekkers from various parts of Maharashtra visit these forts in large numbers each year. The local people earn their livelihood from trekking and other tourist activities.


Various trekking and tourism groups had urged the government for reopening of the forts so that the locals could revive their economic conditions.
