Rajmachi, a picturesque region consisting of two stubborn peaks namely Manaranjan and Shrivardhan, is a magnificent tourist destination in the state of Maharashtra, India. Rajmachi is famed for the fort and is near to the twin hill stations Khandala and Lonavala in Maharashtra. Shrivardhan is the biggest peak with a height of about 3000 feet and Manaranjan has an altitude of 2700 feet. There is a serene plateau between the peaks. Rajmachi has a verdant history as the part of many rulers and invaders of the country. The fort symbolizes the political turmoil Rajmachi witnessed.

The fort in Rajmachi can be considered as two forts, one each in both the peaks. The fort is constructed to have an overview of the konkan region down. Rajmachi is renowned for trekking; one can trek from the Tungarli Lake region to Rajmachi through the breathtaking rocky natural trek routes. The ancient caves known as Kondhavi enclosed by the Rajmachi fort offer a nice view of the ancient creative architecture on rocks.

The location is surrounded by undulated hilly regions and lusting greeneries offered by dense forests surrounding the city. Ulhas River offer a great charm to the city and many tourists like to have a nice bath in the cool and unpolluted river. Many enthusiastic tourists visit Rajmachi to have an enjoyable forest and fort visit. The flora and fauna in the wild regions are highly worthy and one can see many wild life animals in the wild life sanctuary in Rajmachi.

The Rajmachi area is not much explored, but presently many new concrete buildings have already come up and deforestation makes a threat for the flora and fauna of Rajmachi wild forests.
