About Fort

  • Height of the Fort:
  • 3600 ft
  • District:
  • Nashik
  • How to reach:
  • To reach the plateau of these forts, we have reach village Mulane, which is located on Vani – Kalwan link road. Vani is located 43 km north of Nashik on SH22. We can also get down in before Mulane, half an hour ahead of Babapur on the ridge connecting the twin forts and Markandya fort. From the ridge we can reach the plateau.
  • Description:
  • This one is comparatively less tough, as the trail to this fort is quite clear and there are rock cut steps to reach the top. The trail from the base goes over the trunk of the mountain, and leads to the rock cut steps. We can also see some abandoned rock cut caves. The steps lead to the main entrance of the fort, where we find a stone inscription. If we go to the left side as we enter, we can see some caves and cisterns there. If we return to the top and go to the other side of the fort, there are rock cut water cisterns. None of these cisterns have potable water. The view from both these forts is breath-taking. From Jawlya, we can see forts Dhodap, Ikhara, Kanhergad, Kanchna and Indrai.
