Location Details

The Baglan region of Nashik district is rich with the forts. But except for Salher-Mulher none of the forts were fortunate to witness the events in the past. Seeing the water tanks carved out in the rocks, it can be assumed that the fort existed during Chattrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s reign. Then, all the forts of the Baglan region were in the hands of the Mughals. Seeing the temples on the fort, one cannot deny the possibility of Dermaal being a part of the Maratha kingdom.
User Experience

Dermaal is rich with the historical evidences.The spread is large so one has to take out time to see this fort in detail. It is believed that old coins are found in this region. The heritage of fortification and bastions and the remains of the entrance gateways are clearly visible at this fort. The North face of Dermaal is very popular. There are water tanks on the top. Rock cut caves are seen on the west. The complete region is devoid of shade giving trees. One has to climb for almost an hour to reach the top. There are 7 water tanks amongst which 5 are filled with water. The view this fort offers from the top is very serene. The vastness of the neighboring Pisolgad at the West can be also seen from here. Mangi–Tungi and Chaulher lie behind Dermaal.
