Alang Madan Kulang Trek
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 these treks difficult. These three forts are a little neglected due to very heavy rains in the area and a difficult confusing path to the forts
Being in the same region of the three forts the climb to Kulang is the most difficult. On the way up climbing, we come across patches of rock-cut steps. It takes 6 hours to reach from Kulanwadi to the fort. On the fort, we can see around 5 water cisterns. Form here we could also see Mahuli with the 3 pinnacles. One can also stay at the caves here.
The time taken to reach here is roughly 3-4 hours 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 cisterns. 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 Katrabai to its south.
