Are you ready for an adventure of a lifetime? Look no further than Alang Fort, one of the most challenging places to visit in India! But trust us when we say that the thrill and excitement you’ll experience at Alang Gad is simply indescribable. You’ll be transformed after this trek, with memories of fun, adventure, and even a few daring moments to share with your friends.

The journey to Alang Fort is no easy feat. The path leading up to it is a labyrinth, adding to the pleasure of the journey. But once you reach the top, the reward is well worth it. The stunning views of the surrounding Madan Fort and the plateau make the trek worth all the sweat and effort.

Alang Fort, also known as Alangad, is one of the three forts in the Kalsubai range of the Western Ghats, along with Madangad and Kulang. These three forts are the most challenging in Nasik District due to the dense forest and lack of population, making them a true adventure for any trekker.

There are two caves for staying and 11 water cisterns, as well as remnants of buildings spread across the fort. A small temple can also be seen. The panoramic views from the fort are breathtaking, with Kalasubai, Aundh Fort, Patta, Bitangad, Harihar, Trymbakgad, Anjaneri, Harishchandragad, Aajobagad, Khutta, Ratangad, Katrabai, and the surrounding area all visible.

According to the stone carvings in the fort, it was built by local tribes who resided in the nearby Ambewadi villages. Despite being built with marvel stone, years of destruction and lack of maintenance have left the fort in a less-than-stellar condition. But it still stands tall at a height of 1372 meters above sea level, attracting tourists from all over the world.

You’ll need to go to Kasara or Igatpuri and then Ambevadi by the Igatpuri/Kasara-Ghoti-Pimpalnermor route. But don’t worry, a bus is available at 6 a.m. from Ghoti to Ambevadi. From there, you’ll need to trek for approximately 8-9 hours to reach the fort. If you’re feeling particularly daring, you can climb a broken pinnacle of 80-90 feet to reach the fort in just 6 hours.

But if you’re not up for the challenge, there are other ways to reach the fort. You can go through Ghatghar via Ghoti-Bhandardara or take the route via Bhandardara from Udadvade gaon.

No matter which way you choose to reach Alang Fort, just remember to take care of your belongings while trekking through the jungle. And trust us, the hike is well worth the time and effort. You’ll get a true taste of the area’s natural landscape and see some amazing scenery.

So pack your bags, put on your trekking shoes, and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime at Alang Fort!
