User Experience

Sindola is not a hill fort. But seeing the sky high top and the unforgettable views it gives, one feels the sheer joy of visiting this place. To the East are the Katra, Ajoba and Ratangad forts. To the South are Bhairavgad, Ghanchakkar. The Bhandardara dam is at the North and adding a backdrop to it is the Kalsubai peak. Alang- Madan-Kulang are seen here. The wat to the fort is full of trees in the beginning and then with the slippery pathways. In rainy season it becomes too slippery and this part to travel in wind becomes bery difficult. There is a small water body in the way where the water is potable. One has to climb up keeping Sindola at the right. The pathway is not so wide and needs utmost care. On one side is the wall of rock and on the other side is the deep valley. As one moves ahead, there are stones kept in the way in order to guide the path. After a while, the bastion to the right is visible. The Entrance gate has vanished but the ruins are visible. Seeing the fantastic location of this Sindola, one wonders why it is not a hill fort.
