Easy accessibility and beautiful rock formations make Mahuli a hit with the trekkers from Mumbai and surrounding areas.

Mahuli Fort played its role throughout history with the Mughals, Nizamshahi. Shivaji Maharaj and British vying for it. The best part of the trek up Mahuli is the panoramic view from top of all prominent peaks on the Sahyadris. Mahuli Fort & Shivaji Maharaj: Shahaji Rane, father of Shivaji Maharaj antagonised the Mughals when he became the secretary of Nizamshahi. In 1635 Shahaji had to take shelter at Mahuli fort along with his Wife Jija Bai and a young Shivaji.
