Fascinating Spots :

      The bastions and entrance are destroyed, with some remnants of ramparts. There are around 14 water tanks on the fort. It takes half an hour to see the fort.
Ways To Reach :
      Panhaleghar is the base village of the fort. We have to reach Lonere village to reach Panhaleghar, which is 5 km away. Lonere is situated at 8 km from Mangaon towards Mahad on Mumbai Goa highway. It takes half an hour to reach the top from Buddhawadi in base village.

The most economical way is to travel in Diva-Madgaon passenger train at Diva (around 6 am). It reaches Mangaon around 10 am. We can see Mangad and then Panhaledurga. The same train can be boarded at Goregaon station (not to be confused with Goregaon on Mumbai western railway) at 5 pm.

We can visit Mangad, Kurdugad and Panhaledurga in one day with private vehicle; provide the time management is good.
