Mahuli fort has a long and interesting history from the 16 century when Shahaji, the great military leader of the time moved in with his son, the great Shivaji maharaj and his mother Jijabai. 

Numerous battles have been fought to keep possession of this strategic location by Marathas, Mughals, Portuguese and many more..

Cut to today's time, the place is now a protected area and part of the Tansa wildlife Sanctuary. It is very popular with 2 types of people, 1st with ones who are looking for trekking and adventure and the other who are interested in some wildlife and bird watching activity. 

I was the 2nd type and the intention was to explore and photograph the birds and wildlife of this reserve forest. To be true I went with an open mind but was pleasantly surprised by the hustle and bustle of the birds in the early hours of the morning. 

I tried the trek up and reached the 1st level, which was a steep climb and then a flat plateau type of a place. I got to see the very beautiful Leaf Bird there. Taking the left turn I went through a deserted trek which took me by the side of the hill onto a dry river bed. trekking up i got to see the palm headed Parakeet, the Indian robin, Ashy Prinia and the Sulphur Bellied Warbler and a number of Bulbuls.

After this as the Sun was getting more intense, I decided to move down to the base. Before reaching I had to cross a dry stream and decided to follow up the same for a while and see what I can explore. After about 100 meters through the heavy boulders and away from the line of the trek I found a clear area from where I could see the hills rising up in front of me. On the left there was a junction where the stream was divided into 2 and behind me was a stretch of forested area with a lot of birds movement. 

I selected a flat boulder where I could lean and seat down to take some rest. While waiting here I got to see many bird species like the blue rock thrush, Rufous treepie, the black hooded oriole and many types of  sunbirds. I also got to see the Indian Skink Lizard on a big boulder on the dry river bed ahead. 

I wanted to wait here longer but time was not on my side and the harshness of the sun not helping eight.  All in all it is a good place for nature lovers like me and in the future I would love to visit again for a better experience with the knowledge and learning for this trip.

‪Get to Asangaon and take the local ST bus till the base village. Share an auto option is also available.Get off the approach road. A little beyond the Hanuman temple is an inroad that leads to Mahuli. A small board also indicates the trek starts here. A well marked route is available till the summit.

Some place its gradual climb. This trek also has a few steep gradient climbs. Around 90 minutes of trekking will get to a plateau which then bring you the iron ladder. An hour climb shall get you to chota Mahuli‬

‪Exotic fort with strange pinnacles. This fort looks like a place straight out of Jurassic Park or Avatar, thanks to the strangely shaped pinnacles created by wind erosion over thousands of years. Close to Asangaon railway station on the suburban central railway, it should be on the bucket list of every trekker.‬

‪I visited the fort on 17 Nov 2019. I started with my friend Imam from Dadar on 16th Dec 2019 by 6 PM. Boarded train to Kasara. reached Asangaon Station around 8 PM. We already got number of Local guy Vilas Thakare (9309912730). He came with his bike and took us to his home near base village. We ate good Non Veg food and fall asleep by 10.30 pm. In morning we woke up at 6 Am and Vilasji took as to his makeshift hotel which is very close to trek start point. We had our breakfast there and started to trek around 7 Am. There at entrance to Mahuli fort we need to pay visiting fee to forest department(Rs 30 per head).
We started trek. The atmosphere was pleasant. It took 2 hrs to reach The top of fort where saffron flags are hosted. After that we went up to see the remains of caves and fort Mahadwar. We there found some locals exploring Palasgad. We joined them and explored the Palasgad. It was difficult to find route and to climb the peak. The journey with locals was really enjoyable. Then we returned. Bid bye to locals and started our return jorney. Around 3 PM we reached the base. Then had lunch and returned to Asangaon Station.
It was trek of easy grade with respect to risk and moderate with respect to endurance.
It cost us 1500 for both including two meals , one breakfast lodging at night and transportation to and from Asangaon.‬

‪The trek was closed due to land slides frequently happening. We visited on 10th Aug 2019, and got to know the trek was closed since 20 Jul 2019. Please check with someone before visiting.

However even if the trek is closed you can only enjoy the waterfalls at the base of the trek starting point.‬

‪Mahuli presents a wonderful monsoon trek. The fort has barely anything left from back when it must’ve been a watch tower/outpost, but it’s a fun climb. The views you see along the way are spectacular panoramas of the Western Ghats, made even more beautiful in the rainy season.

For a large part of the trek, we were among the clouds. You’ll cross a river at the start, and you’ll walk alongside tine streams coming down the hill. The path is slippery, especially on the way down by which time hundreds of footsteps make the soil even more loose. At many areas where there’s a confusion regarding the path, there are tiny markings in yellow/white to show you which way to go (the other way also works and eventually paths join). You’ll see plenty of crabs and snails along the way, and there are also many tiny insects in the monsoons, so be careful. Some paths are narrow, some are steep, requiring more care.

Aim to start trekking by 8AM, because on weekends and holidays, crowds start pouring in by 10/10:30 and then it gets too crowded slowing you down and taking the fun out of it. It even gets more slippery as more people go over the same muddy paths. Wear good trekking shoes with a nice grip, carry ample water, and waterproof clothing. There is no stall/vendor for anything on the fort.

The trek is intermediate level, not too strenuous, nor too easy, but in the monsoons, it gets a little more difficult. Should take you about 2 hours to go up, and 2 to come down (this is at a comfortable pace, with plenty of stops for water/photos).

It is about an hour and a half from Bombay. There is ample parking in the parking lot at the base. They take an entrance fee of ₹30 per person (God knows for what, but thankfully this deters many others). Keep the area clean and don’t litter.‬

‪We took a local an early morning local from Ghatkopar took an hour and half to reach Asangaon, a rickshaw one way from the railway station to Mahuli base cost us 250/- for three people. There aren't many options to eat at the base besides vada pav bhaji and tea, so make sure you carry a lot snacks & fruits along. Took us three hours to ascend to the top it was an amazing experience it was pouring down heavy so the rocks were slippery make sure you wear sturdy sports shoes & two hours to descend with a couple of halts, it is an easy one day trip. We even came across a waterfall at the top carry extra pair of clothes if you wish to get wet in it. Carry atleast 2ltrs of water per person and a camera to capture your moments. Definitely go here if you looking for a trek near Mumbai.‬

‪On 7-7-2019 public was allowed to enter the fort because of heavy rains. So it is advised to visit the fort as you may be disappointed.‬
