  • Worth trekking.. It's a good place. But need to secure it more from alcoholics. Trek difficulty = Medium Here one can see very amazing views while going to the top. Ideal time is monsoon to visit this place but one need to have proper precautions in monsoons!
  • Mahuli fort... One of the historic fort place in asangaon region almost 9.5 km from asangaon railway station & around 9 km from NH 160 highway. Very beautiful place for tracking, almost 3:00 hr to 3:30hr required for tracking from base to top of the fort. Go early morning for tracking so we can easily complete the 3 spot present at top of fort. Also there is drinking water pond present at the top of fort.
  • One of the best fort to visit in the vicinity of Mumbai. Good option for new as well as pro trakers. Near from Asangaon station and well connected by public transport. Food is available at the base village with place to stay.
  • MAHULI FORT Located at the convergence of beautiful rivers Krishna and Yenna, Mahuli, a tiny locale in the Thane district of Maharashtra is also called as Sangam Mahuli. This town is famous for the fabulous temples, ancient forts, and of course for its mountainous terrain.  Mahuli is one among the challenging regions of the majestic Sahyadris, and it is the highest point in the Thane district. Adorned with fabulous hill forts and peaks, Mahuli is one among the favourite place of trekkers. Like all other hilly areas of Sahyadris, Mahuli is also surrounded by luxurious thick forest, and the forest around this hilly place is declared as a national reserve. Tansa Lake  A picturesque lake, formed across the Tansa river is placed within the Tansa Wildlife Sanctuary, in Thane District of Maharashtra. Tansa lake, one among the largest lakes, with a capacity of 3 million gallons of water is the chief source of drinking water to Mumbai. Bounded by the woody forests of the mahuli hills, this magnificient lake is an abundant resource of water and it is the perpetual source of water to the near by wildlife sanctuary. The main attraction in and around this artificial lake is the Tansa wild life sanctuary, that spread over a vast area of the thick forest. This sanctuary houses rare species like panther, Cheeta, Sambar and common languor. The Tansa lake with its silent and colossal spread of water amidst a woody forest is really a nice place and worth for a one day tour. Manas Mandir A marvelous Jain temple, located at the base of the Mahuli hill is popularly known as shri Bhuvan Bhanu Jain Manas Mandir Tirtha. An awesome panchaloha (5 metals) idol of Aadeshwar Bhagwan adorns the garbha griha (sanctum) of the temple, and it makes the devotee think that the deity will speak at the very moment. A large temple complex at the top of a hill and a river flowing beneath is indeed a stunning scenario. The 76 feet pillar less dome and its superb ceilings, tremendous carvings reveal the architectural brilliance of the makers of this fabulous shrine. Another important attraction of this incredible shrine is that, the old temple excavated from Gujarat is located a few meters away and it houses marble statues of 500-700 years old. In the backyard of the old temple, there is a 100 years old banyan tree, which is a habitat for so many rare snakes. All these wonderful structures and its surrounding lush greenery, makes Manas Mandir, a must seen holy place. Mahuli, a temple town, is famed for the illustrious temples that exhibit architectural excellence and elegance. Hindus in India consider Mahuli as one of the sacred places. Many of the paramount temples in Maharashtra, like Sangameswara, Visveswera, Rameswara and Boleswera are located in this region. Temples at the base of the hills, at the backdrop of mountains and lush greenery, and the rivers flowing near by is an eye-catching spectacle   Mahuli, a temple town, is famed for the illustrious temples that exhibit architectural excellence and elegance.

  • Good Place for trekking. Recommended for those who love mountains and greenery. Thou it is named as "fort" but hardly anything related to that can be observed.
