Ghangad Fort

Situated near Tamhini Ghat, the 300-year-old Ghangad Fort was a jail used for housing prisoners. It was under the Maratha empire until March 1818, post which they had to surrender it to the British. The fort has two main gates with the arch of the main entrance missing. The place offers a panoramic view of Tailbaila, Mulshi Dam, Korigad and Sudhagad Fort. Ghangad offers one of the best camping sites in the region with ample space for setting up tents, making bonfires and cooking food.

The trek to this fort is relatively easy from the base village of Ekole. There is a cave around 45 minutes from the starting point of the trek, after which the ascent becomes slightly cumbersome. A steep and robust metal ladder lies ahead, and it is advisable to have an experienced guide along with you.
