Chavand Fort is situated on the top of a hill in Junnar taluka in the district of Pune in Maharashtra state. It is located in the Sahyadris mountain Range and is almost 30 km from the present Naryangoan town in Junnar taluka. The fortification was built at an elevation of 3400 feet (1036 m) above sea level. The Chavandwadi village is located at the base of the hill fort.

From the western side of the Chavand Fort, there is a way to go to the top of the fort along with the school of the village. The time required to reach the entrance of the door is about 45 minutes from the western side of the Chavand Fort. From here stairs will take us to the plains of the fort on which remnants of many constructions can be seen.

The base village of the fort is called Chavandwadi and any bus/vehicle going towards Aptale can drop you at Chavandwadi. Once you start the trek from Chavandwadi, you reach rock steps which were destroyed by the British Army. After a short while you will see a huge stone door built in the Gomukhi style architecture. This door is called the Mahadarwaja. From the Mahadarwaja the route splits into two, the left one takes you to the fort walls and the right one takes you to the top of the fort.

On the top of the fort the path further splits into two, the left one takes you to a dilapidated temple and the Seven tanks, while the right one takes you to the Chamunda devi temple.
