  • Achala is situated near village Bilwadi, which is 30 km from Vani, and 26 km south of Saputara, Gujarat (This is spelled as Anchala in Google maps or Achalaa in wikimapia). Bilwadi is the base village of Ahivant fort. A trail leads to a ridge which connects Achala and Ahivant. Bilwadi is to the east side of the ridge. There is a small temple located here, from where we can walk on the ridge towards right and reach the top of the fort. The trail curves to the right of the crest and leads to rock cut steps.
