If you are fond of trekking, surely you should not miss Daulatabad fort. You need to climb up a number of steps to reach the top. Good location for photography. Various canons could be seen here and the largest canon is situated at the top of the fort. I always wonder how could those people carry such a huge thing... More

Visited the fort in February and it was already hot for the hike. It took me a little over 1hour to go up and half an hour down. There is nothing much on the top except a couple of cannons but the city and plateau views are quite nice. Worth to go up for the view and to see how... More

The walk up the mountain to the top of the fort is exhilarating. Take a lot of water and try to do it on a cool day. Wear comfortable footwear if you plan to go all the way. Take a flashlight if you plan to go up via the labyrinth of intricate passages and steps cut in the rock or... More

The fort is spread over a large area however it could be possibly restored to reflect past glory. What remains is good but not great. Cannon collection & display is good. Carry a hat & sunglasses.

To be frank, we underestimated this fort's effect on our itinerary. As we parked the car and went inside, we were greeted by a guide. We politely refused. Entered the fort and started looking around. Few minutes later, guide comes inside and starts explaining stuff. He said and I quote "Do not pay me a paisa if you are not... More
