Trek Difficulty

Alang Fort also known as 'Alangad' is a fort in Nashik district, Maharashtra, India. It is one of the three forts, the others being Madan and Kulang, in the Kalsubai range of the Western Ghats. They are the most difficult to reach  in Nashik District. A dense forest cover makes these treks difficult. These three forts are a little neglected due to very heavy rains in the area and a difficult confusing path to the fort.Being in the same region of the three forts it is  said that climb to Kulang is the most difficult. On the way up to climbing, we come across patches of rock cut steps. It takes 6 hours to reach from Kulangwadi to the fort. On the fort to see around there are 5 water cisterns. From top we could also see Mahuli with the 3 pinnacles. One can also stay at the caves here.

The time taken could around 3 to 4 hours to reach the step after leaving Kulang fort. over here rock climbing would be required as the wall of the steps was destroyed during the cannon fire.
