Galna Fort, a historical fortress nestled in the south Khandesh area of Maharashtra, India.

But don’t let its old age fool you, this fort has got some serious character!

The trek to the top of Galna Fort is an adventure in itself. You’ll come across some secret walkways and caves.

If you’re planning a visit, we recommend going in the winter season. The lack of greenery means you won’t miss out on anything if you skip the monsoon season. But if you’re braving the summer heat, make sure you pack sunscreen, sunglasses, and plenty of water. Trust us, you don’t want to get caught without any protection from that sweltering sun!

And if you’re lucky, you might even spot some monkeys on your trek up to the top. Don’t worry, they won’t bite… as long as you don’t have any food for them to snatch.

This fortress has been around since the 15th century and has seen its fair share of battles and conquerors. Rumors even suggest that a British officer met his untimely end here.

The fort is well-maintained and has plenty of steps for you to climb up to the top. Just make sure you pack some snacks and water since there are no commercial activities on site.

Once you reach the top, you’ll be greeted with stunning views and a variety of structures that serve as a reminder of the past. From the Guru Gorakhnath temple to the red-colored Ganesh idol, there’s something for everyone.
