The AMK trek takes you to three different forts in one trip. We start trekking after midnight and carry on from one peak to another.
The monsoon has turned the forests and earth lush green and moist.
This trek is said to be one of the most difficult treks in the Sahyadri.
A dense forest cover and overgrown paths make these treks difficult. We may need to use fixed ropes for part of this trek.
The Western Ghats or Sahyadris are a World Heritage Site, famous for the ecological diversity here. With thousands of flora and fauna species exlcusive to this region, any trek through this area involves plenty of interaction with nature.
This trek takes you to Alangad, Madangad and Kulangad, in the Kalsubai range of the Western Ghats.
The climb to Kulang fort takes you over patches of rock-cut steps. while for Kulang, we will have to do some amount of rock climbing and use a fixed rope.
The top of the fort is a huge plateau with great views in all directions.
See ancient water cisterns and remnants of buildings at the top of each fort. | Explore exciting caves at the top of Kulang fort. | Look out for the 3 pinnacles of Mahuli from Kulangad. | Rope up to cross tricky sections of the climb.
