I am Alang Fort- one of the most difficult places to visit. But having said this, the kind of adventure and thrill that I offer the visitors is inexpressible. The tourists undergo a complete transformation after visiting me. They have fun, adventure, thrill, and some daring moments of their life while coming towards me.
The labyrinth path that is traversed to reach me enhances the pleasure of the journey. The amazing views of the surroundings including the Madan fort which I offer from the top are really rewarding.
I am located in Nashik district in the state of Maharashtra. I, along with Mandangad and Kulang, augment the beauty of the Kalsubai range of the Western Ghats.
We three forts are regarded as the toughest to be reached. This is because of the climatic conditions in this area. We usually receive a lot of rainfall. This, along with the difficult terrain, mystifying path and dense forests around me make it difficult to reach me in a planned manner, so, trekking towards me in a team is always enjoyable. I test the visitor’s patience, mental toughness, and stamina.
My history is gripping as the British Raj who had control over me blasted off my steps in order to prevent revolutionaries from invading me. This isolated me from the rest of the area but I managed to preserve myself. Actually it is still a big challenge to reach me by following a definite path.
I am U-shaped and I have a temple of Lord Shiva. I have two caves in the front and there are some water tanks as well. Whereas one cave is small, the other one is spacious and can accommodate a lot of visitors.
