  • Trip introduction

    The trek to Alang, Madan and Kulang is one of the most iconic adventures designed to challenge the trekker with narrow spaces, steep inclines, scary drops and rocky trails. As you go rappelling down difficult mountain cliffs, you'll stop at vantage points and admire stunning views of the rough and rugged hills in the Sahyadri range.

    After a day spent exploring craggy mountains and dense greenery, you'll spend the night inside the deep caves of Madan and wake up to a misty morning view of the sunrise. This adventure is perfect for travellers looking to take up a difficult trek near Mumbai to explore something a bit unique than most other treks in the Sahyadri.

    Destination

    Rising high above the flatlands in the Western Ghats near Mumbai, the three forts of Alang, Madan and Kulang offer a challenging yet enticing trek to adventure junkies. From the top of these forts, you look down at the deep valley and spot neighbouring hill forts of Ratangad and Harishchandragd on the horizon. The Kalsubai peak, the tallest in Maharashtra, can also be seen from the three forts.
