Location Details

Amongst the peaks of Sahyadris, Alang and Madan are the most diffcult ones for climbing. It is merely impossible to climb without the trekking instruments. Seeing the condition of the fort, one can easily guess that it dates quite back in the history. Though it is not so famous in the pages of history, Alang-Madan-Kulang trio was captured by the Peshwas. They were first into the Mughal Kingdom. Later, when the sun of the Peshwa dynasty was about to set, the British captured these forts with the help of their arms and ammunitions. It was then that the routes to the top of these peaks were destroyed. Thanks to them, one can enjoy the thrill of trekking.
User Experience

This is a fortress of very great natural strength. From the trekker’s point of view, it can be called the ‘fort of traverses’. Three - fourths of the fort has to be traversed, at least three times at different levels to reach the top. A small cave is dug in between the traverse which can be conveniently used to stay. It has a non potable source of water. From the side of this cave, there is a small sand route leading one to the top of the fort. At the top there is a lake comprising of seven water channels or hauds. A series of water cisterns arranged in a semi - circular fashion on the top is a unique sight. There is an excellent view of the neighbouring Kalsubai. Remains of a storage building and a temple can be found at the top. The fort covers a huge area. One end of the fort descends down in the pass between Alang and Madangad. This route is very difficult and requires at least one expert rock climber.
