  • Trip introduction

    Seeking adventure that's tangled with a history lesson? Then the Ankai Fort Trek is perfect. This easy-to-medium intensity trek has everything in great measure. Adventure lovers get their regular kick climbing to the summit, nature lovers get their share of scenery to marvel at and history buffs can take in a quick lesson of how forts were built all those years.

    Destination

    The twin forts of Ankai and Tankai are located 10 kms away from Manmad. Both forts are situated on two different hills, divided by a natural gorge. The main purpose of the forts was to keep an eye on the historical Surat-Aurangabad highway used extensively for trade.

    There is a lot of history in the walls of the forts and most of the fortifications are still intact. But the fort is not the only attraction on the trek. Participants come across remains of a dargah and some gorgeous Jain caves on the trail.

    Destination highlights

    • Enjoy great views of Khandesh and the Godavari valley
    • Explore the Jain caves found on the trail
    • Learn about the architecture of this historic fort
