Offbeat Trek to Kamalgad Fort By The Kayakers™


This fort is situated close to the picturesque Hill Station of Mahabaleshwar in the Satara District near Wai, and can be seen from the Pasarani Ghat. This fort is seen in the background in the movies ‘Swades’ and ‘Being Cyrus’. Despite this proximity to one of the most famous tourist spots in Maharashtra, this fort is not very well known. Surrounded by the waters of the Dhom Dam on 3 sides, this fort is covered with thick forests at the top.
