Why: Closest paragliding spot to Mumbai, scenic ghat view, good community of paragliding clubs with experienced instructors; all this and more at affordable prices!

Alang-Madan Trek, Nashik

alan trek

Why: One of the most difficult forts to climb among all the forts in the Sahyadris; however totally worth it since the view from the top is quite scenic. The top of the fort is a huge plateau with two water tanks on it. There are two caves on the fort for staying and 11 water cisterns arranged in a cascade formation as well as a dilapidated storage room. Generally, not advisable as a first time trek, since its rated tough level for trekking.
