Kulang – Madangad – Alang
Kulang : Kulang, Madan and Alang are adjoining peaks and the most prominent among them is Kulang. Standing at the edge of the ghats, it commands a fabulous view all around and tough climb is amply rewarded by a most fascinating sunset. Kulang offers the highest climb from its base to the top in the Sahyadris.The huge rocky terrain, falling steeply to the Konkan presents grand sight.
Madangad : This is a difficult peak to reach. A broad rocky staircase takes you to the bottom of the rock climbing wall, one must be experienced and careful while climbing this fortress. Further ahead, steps lead to a broad plateau with a huge cave and water ponds.
Alang : This is a huge fortress of very great natural strength. A series of water cisterns arranged in a semi-circular fashion on the top is a unique sight. Huge caves are there on the top.
