The route is quite difficult for trekking as there are dense forests surrounding the area and there is no specific marked route to reach the destination. Due to the fire of the cannons during various invasions most of the steps to the fort has been destroyed. Knowledge and skill of rock climbing is required to reach the Madangad fort. A fixed rope is needed for this. This long trek may take 3 – 4 hours to reach the steps. Heavy rain in the area often makes it difficult for the trekkers to complete the whole trek as the paths become more confusing and tricky.
Alang, Bitangad, Kalasubai are to the east of the Madangad while Harihar, Trymbakgad, Anjaneri lies to its north. Kulang is to the west of the fort and Aajobagad, Harishchandragad, Kutta, Ratangad are all towards its south. In order to visit Madangad, it is necessary to first reach Kasara station which is on the Nashik – Kalyan rail route. One needs to climb the small steep steps where the other side is exposed to the valley. This climbing can be challenging if the person is carrying heavy load like a rucksack. Although difficult, the trek can be unique and is a must visit for adventure lovers.
