Toughest Trek of the Sahyadri Range !!
About the Alang-Madan Trek :
Alang & Madan, situated in Kalsubai range, are one of the most difficult fort treks in Nashik District.
Alang (4852 ft): The beautiful Alang Fort lies in the Nashik region. Top of the fort is huge plateau. There are two caves on the fort for staying and 11 water cisterns arranged in a Cascade formation & a dilapidated storage room.
Madan (4841 ft): Madangad is considered to be one of the most difficult forts to climb among all the forts in the Shayadris. 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. The area visible from the top of the fort is quite scenic.

Only this fort can be climbed without technical help. To reach the top one has to climb rock cut stairs, some which are broken are blown away by the British.
