@About Alang fort:
Alang Fort (also Alangad) is a fort in Nashik district,
Maharashtra, India. It is one of the three forts, the others
being Madangad and Kulang, in the Kalsubai range of the
Western Ghats. They are the most difficult to reach forts in
Nasik District. A dense forest cover make thesetreks difficult.
These three forts are a little neglected due to very heavy rains
in the area and a difficult confusing path to the forts
@About Kulang fort:
Being in the same region of the three forts its said climb to
Kulag is the most difficult. On the way up climbing we come
across patches of roch cut steps. It take 6 hours to reach from
Kulanwadi to the fort. On the fortto see around 5 water
cisterns. Form here we could also see Mahuli with the 3
pinacles. One can also stay at the caves here.
@About Madan fort:
The climb preferred is usually between Madan and Alang. The
time taken could around 3-4 hours toreach the step after
leaving Kulung fort. over here rock climbing would be required
as the wall of the steps was destroyed during the cannon fire.
Use of a fixed rope is required. There is one large cave on this
fort and 2 water cistern. The top of the fort is a huge plateau.
On the fort, there are two caves, a small temple and 11 water
cisterns. Remnants of buildings are spread over the fort.
Kalasubai, Aundh Fort, Patta and Bitangad are to the east of
the fort, Harihar, Trymbakgad and Anjaneri to its north and
Harishchandragad,Aajobagad, Khutta (pinnacle), Ratangad and
