User Experience

Situated in a rather remote place is the small hill fort of Bittangad. Mahankala is also easily climbed from here. Bitangad lies to the North of Pattya and Odha fort and spreads right up to the Kalsubai. After seeing the fort one understands that it is really fortunate to be called so. In this straight tall range, the presence of Bittangad is not dominating at all. The region around is scarcely populated. It must be densely forested before. Currently this region is very much apt for trekking. Straight from Kalsubai towards the East, this fort attracts the viewer’s eye. On the way to the fort lies the beautiful village of Bittawadi to the right and the tall standing Bittangad to the left The climb from the steps takes one to the cave on the top. Towards the right is a dry water tank. The entrance gateway of the fort is in complete ruins. Towards the South are the remains of the fort. One descends down feeling the serenity of the village below. It is a wonderful trek, which can be completed in an hour or two from the base camp.

Do Not Miss

Quick 2 hour trek. Must enjoy swimming in the Kund. This fort should be enjoyed in monsoons and winters. Forest department has constructed railings along the old rock cut steps. View around the fort is splendid.
