Fascinating Spots :

      We can see a rock cut bastion on the fort, and a hole in the rock ahead of that (It is called “Nedha” by local people). The way in front of this leads to the mountain top, which is extensive. It takes around one hour to see the fort. There are 6-7 water cisterns, a ShivLing, a rock cut cave facing Dhodap fort and remnants of old mansions. We can see the forts of Saptashrungi, Markandya, Rawlya-Jawlya, Dhodap, Kanchna, and Handya from the eastern side.
Ways To Reach :
      There are 2 ways to the fort, which lead to the ridge between Kanhergad and the adjoining mountain. From here we can reach the top in an hour. One has to be careful as it is a bit steep ascent and some part has scree.

      We need to reach Otur village on Nasik – Kalvan road. From Otur, Kanherwadi village is at a walk of half an hour. The pathway from here takes an hour to reach the ridge.
