Overview/Itinerary

Alang Madan Fort Trek 

 

We would be covering these two massive forts in two days whole idea is to spend time on these forts and explore them. 

Alang Fort height 4852 feet The beautiful Alang Fort lies in the Nashik region. Top of the fort is huge plateau. There are two caves on the fort for staying and 11 water cisterns arranged in a Cascade formation & a dilapidated storage room.

Mandan Fort height 4841 feet Madangad is considered to be one of the most difficult forts to climb among all the forts in the Sahyadri. The area of the fort is quite small as compared to Alang and Kulang, its adjoining forts. There are only two water tanks on top of the fort. The area visible from the top of the fort is quite scenic.
