Ghangad is situated on the western side of Mulshi river, which is called as Kobarse Maval. This fort is surrounded by Korigad, Telbaila and Sudhagad, but still lonely and separated. There is not much documentation explored about the history of the fort. Earlier it was with Koli Samant, then with Adilshah and later with Marathas.

Telbaila was a watch tower built to guard over the Sahwashni ghat near Pali. It consists of two rock walls, the left and the right clearly differentiated by the col. in between. There is a temple of local goddess at the base of the twin wall. There are lots of ancient man-made water tank & caves at the base as well as on the climbing routes. Though not of much historic importance – the rock walls of Telbaila offer great rock climbing opportunities of technical grade.
