User Experience

The forts in the North-West region of Nashik are so located that many trekkers or wanderers don’t generally visit these places. The region though, is densely covered with beautiful forests and the roads are very ideal location for long drives. The serpentine roads with farmlands on both sides give a very pleasing view. During and after the rains, the complete region looks fresh green with streams of water running through it. Thinking about a fort, one imagines it with the entrance gateways, fortifi cations and bastions. But this fort has none of it. While climbing the pathway, there are farmlands along the hill slopes. Dense vegetation of a variety of fruit bearing trees along the route makes the climb more interesting. There are two big trees of Umbar (Marathi name) on the top where a statue of Goddess was located. But it is now shifted into the village. Towards the South are river Damanganga and Waghera fort. To the West on the top are water tanks carved out in the rocks. To the North-East is seen a series of lose stones which might have been the fortifi cation wall in the past. There is a small lake towards the west.
