Fascinating Spots :

      The top of this fort is so wide, that it can almost be called a plateau. There are some remnants of the fortification on the top. Ruins of a temple, of the residential structures and a couple of water cisterns can be seen here. However, the water in these tanks is not potable and hence it is necessary to carry enough quantity of water.

A cave with a temple of goddess Kapaar Bhavani can also be found on the plateau during the fort-walk. Apart from these places there isn't much to be seen on the fort. One can either return by the same path to visit the Mulher fort or go back to the village of Mulher. The whole walk on the fort can be completed in an hours time.
Ways To Reach :
      Presently there exists only a single way to reach the fort-top. This path traverses through the village of Mulher. After leaving the village we reach a tar-road. A walk of about 20 minutes along this road brings us to a bifurcation. The way to the right, passing by a banyan tree, leads to a shepherds' colony on a hillock. At this point one has to turn towards right and reach the pass between fort Mulher and fort Hargad. This can be arrived in about an hour and half. From this pass, the way on the left takes to the fort of Mulher and the one on right to the Hargad. The trail leading to fort Hargad is not much in use and hence is not distinctly visible. An hour's time is sufficient to reach the fort-top from the pass.
Accommodation Facility :
      There is no suitable place on the fort for an overnight stay.
Food Facility :
      One should arrange for own foodstuffs.
Drinking Water Facility :
      No drinking water is available on the fort-top.
Time To Reach :
      It takes about 2 hours from the village of Mulher to reach the fort-top.
