  • Trip introduction

    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.

    Destination

    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.

    Destination highlights

    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.

    Your safety is our priority. Our outdoor leaders have significant experience with outdoor activities and work very hard to make each event a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone. A basic first-aid box is always available during one day/overnight treks.

    We believe in enjoying adventure activity, but also in being responsible. Even as participants, one is responsible towards the environment, camp site, and the local villagers. At Treks and Trails, we try to ensure that there is local participation at our events as this generates revenue for them. We also need to ensure that there is no disposing off of plastic along the trek trail or in any monuments/forts that we visit.
