Mahuli-Fort is a beautiful mountain terrain located in the outskirts of Thane District of Maharashtra.
Situated at a height of 2,815 feet, the destination is surrounded by dense forest, which is declared as a natural reserve. The history of Mahuli-Fort is marked with various events dating back to the 15th century. In 1485, the fort was under the rule of the Nizam Shahi Dynasty. When Shahaji Raje became the secretary of Nijamshahi, Mughals of Delhi tried to end Nijamshahi. In 1635-36, Shahaji Raje transferred himself with Jijabai and Shivaji Maharaj to Mahuli. When Khan Jaman attacked the fort, Shahaji asked Portuguese for help, who refused and Shahaji surrendered.

Shivaji Maharaj took this fort from Mughals on 8 Jan 1658. In 1661 it was given back and was won again by Shivaji Maharaj. In treaty of Purandar, in 1665, Marathas lost these forts again. In Feb 1670, Shivaji Maharaj tried to conquer Mahuli, but failed, Manohardas Gaud, was the in charge of the fort. A thousand Marathas were killed. Manohardas Gaud, soon gave up his position and Alveerdi Beg took over. On 16 June 1670, after two months, Moropant Pingle conquered the forts and Mahuli, Bhandargad and Palasgad became part of Swarajya. Till 1817, Shivaji Maharaj's dynasty owned the fort but later on it
was controlled by the British Raj.

Mahuli-Fort is a prominent place for trekkers, as it has beautiful hill forts and mountain peaks.
