information

about place

AMK trek it’s one of the most challenging treks in the Sahyadri mountain range, which is a dream for every trekker to do it once in their lifetime!

Experience a range trek of climbing 3 forts in 2 days that gives you an adrenaline rush experience while it requires high endurance, each day a walk of 8 hours is needed to complete this trek in 2 days. AMK adventure trek is a perfect mixture of trekking, climbing, rappelling, traversing, jungle walk, walking on the edge, steep stairs with gorge at one end & of course unbelievable satisfaction.

All three forts stand high with a towering height of more than 4500 ft. provides scenery that you will never forget. There are many caves on these peaks where trekkers can be accommodated for night stay along with potable water cisterns.

4852 ft.

alang fort

The top of the fort is the huge plateau. There are two caves on the fort for staying and 11 water cisterns. Remnants of buildings are spread over the fort. A small temple is also seen.
From the fort, we can locate Mt. Kalsubai peak, Aundha-Patta fort, Bitangad situated in the east zone. On the north side, Harihar, Trimbakgad, Anjaneri are seen. To the south, we can locate Harishchandragad, Aajobagad, Khutta (pinnacle), Ratangad, Katrabai, and surroundings. 1 hour is enough to see the fort.

4810 ft.

madan fort

Madan gad is considered to be one of the most difficult forts to climb among all the forts in the Sahyadri. The fort is quite old and also impregnable. The area of the fort is quite small as compared to Alang and Kulang, its adjoining forts. There are only two water tanks on top of the fort in which water is available only until February. There is a cave, which can accommodate around 15-20 trekkers at a time. The area visible from the top of the fort is quite scenic.

4826 ft.

kulang fort

Kulang fort is located in the Igatpuri area of Nashik district, on the western side of the Kalsubai hill range. This fort is adjacent to the Madan gad and Alang forts, all of which were constructed to protect the Nashik-Kalyan ancient commercial road.

There are few rock-cut cisterns and a cave on the fort. There is no significant construction on the fort, except for a Wada made from stone masonry and the ruined main gate. There is potable water on the way and plenty of clean water on the fort. There are spacious caves on the fort which could accommodate up to 100 persons. The pathway to the fort is made of rock-cut steps.

So, get ready for the exciting & thrilling AMK trek in Rugged Sahyadri Mountains!

“The way in which SG organised the trek was really awesome..from first till end we felt like we are in safe hands. It was really a memorable and once in a lifetime trekking exp.
AMK..Every trekker must go for it.”

AMK is a complete trek including everything from rappelling, rock climbing, living in cave, traverse. It requires high endurance and physical fitness and is thus very satisfying. The scenery and vistas specially sunrise and sunset are just awesome, however, the feeling that you get on completion exceeds them all. The most important factor is the group you are trekking with. I was lucky to have done AMK with SG Trekkers and it turned out to be the most fun and complete trek I’ve done in Sahyadris.
