User Experience

Mesna lies in the East region of Chandwad on the Ajanta Satmala range. This fort has always been neglected in the past during the historical times as well as in the present. Since this fort lies in Chandwad region one can also visit the temple of Goddess Renuka which lies nearby. Towards the South of the fort are two valleys from which one has to start along the right valley to reach the plateau of Mesna on the top. One can reach the top very easily, without much climbing There are few water tanks on the top. The water tanks here are the historic wealth of the fort. To the East one can see the lush greens of Ankai-Tankai. To the right is the pinnacle of Habdi. The entire route to this fort is unforgettable. The beauty of this fort is at its best during monsoons and rains. The complete region transforms itself into a picturesque environs. This last fort of the Satmala ranges is a must to be added in the list of treks.
