User Experience

The Bahula fort of the Nashik district though not famous for the civilians, is a military base for the Devlali Military camp. The Jawaans of the military practice with the army tanks in this area. Many youngsters from the base village of Ambe Bahula are working in this military camp. The people of the village are very helpful. The foothill of Bahula is just about 4 kms from the village. The climb is very small in the plateau. The grandeur of the fort is breath taking. The creek in middle of the rock face grabs attention. It takes almost an hour to reach this point. There is rock patch in the way and also some rock cut caves which provide as a resting place in the tiring journery. Then starts the stairway carved out of the rock. After 60-70 steps, is seen the entrance gateway of the fort in the ruins. From this point onwards, no remains of the historic buildings are seen. The complete top is covered with grass with only two water tanks visible. The fortifcation wall does not hold strong to the ground and is in a dilapidated state. The forts of Anjeneri, Gadgada, Ranjangiri, Trimbak range, Kalsubai, Alang-Madan-Kulang, Pattya, Giridurg are visible from the top. Entire Nashik city is clearly visible.
