“AMK trek it's one of the most challenging treks in the Sahyadri mountain range, which is a dream for every trekker to do it once in their lifetime!”

Experience a range trek of climbing 3 forts in 2 days that gives you an adrenaline rush experience while it requires high endurance, each day a walk of 9 hours is needed to complete this trek in 2 days.

AMK adventure trek is a perfect mixture of trekking, climbing, rappelling, traversing, jungle walking, walking on the edge, steep stairs with a gorge at one end & of course unbelievable satisfaction.

All three forts stand high with a towering height of more than 4,500 ft., providing scenery you will never forget. There are many caves on these peaks where trekkers can be accommodated for night stays and potable water cisterns.

Extra InfoAlang Fort: 4,852 ft.

The top of the fort is a vast plateau. There are two caves on the fort for staying and 11 water cisterns. Remnants of buildings are spread over the fort. A small temple is also seen.

From the fort, we can locate Mt. Kalsubai peak, Aundha-Patta, and Bitangad forts situated in the east zone. On the north side, Harihar, Trimbakgad, and Anjaneri are seen. To the south, we can locate Harishchandragad, Aajobagad, Khutta (pinnacle), Ratangad, Katrabai, and surroundings.

Extra InfoMadan Fort: 4,810 ft.

Madan gad is considered to be one of the most difficult forts to climb among all the forts in the Sahyadri.

The fort is quite old and also impregnable. The area of the fort is quite small as compared to Alang and Kulang, its adjoining forts. There are only two water tanks on top of the fort and water is available only until March.

There is a cave, which can accommodate around 20-30 trekkers at a time. The area visible from the top of the fort is quite scenic.

Extra Info.Kulang Fort: 4,826 ft.

Kulang fort is located in the Igatpuri area of Nashik district, on the western side of the Kalsubai hill range. This fort is adjacent to the Madan and Alang forts, all of which were constructed to protect the Nashik-Kalyan ancient commercial road.

There are a few rock-cut cisterns and a cave on the fort. There is no significant construction on the fort, except for a Wada made from stone masonry and the ruined main gate. There is potable water on the way and plenty of clean water on the fort. There are spacious caves on the fort which could accommodate up to 100 persons. The pathway to the fort is made of rock-cut steps.

So, get ready for the exciting & thrilling AMK trek in the Rugged Sahyadri Mountains!
