Kamalgad Trek

 

Despite being a lesser known trekking destination, Kamalgad enthralls the visitors with its unique beauty and mystical aura. The fort is also famous by the names of Bhelanja and Kattalgad and provides an ideal option as a weekend trekking destination for adventure enthusiasts from the nearby cities.

 

The trekking trail is moderately difficult and takes the participants up to a height of 4522 feet above sea level.  Not much is known about the history of the fort except that it was used by the Britishers to keep the prisoners. The fact that, the region rarely sees any visitors ensures that trekkers get to enjoy the sights of lush green surroundings devoid of any debris or clutter left behind by other trekkers.

 

The fort is located at the top of a hill in the Sahyadri range and is surrounded mostly by steep rock formation. Hence, many visitors are surprised to find a deep well at the top that sinks right through the rock into the soil underneath. The sides of the well are made from naturally cut rocks and it still holds water.
