Nakhind literally means a hollow area, passing through a rock. The fort of Nakhind is of similar nature. It is a place for people who are well aware of trekking techniques as it gets little difficult as you ascend. Nakhind is situated in proximity of Vangani, Maharashtra and belongs to the legendary mountain ranges of Sahyadris. The Fort stands approximately 2300 feet high. On a scale, 1 to 10, the difficulty grade can be termed as 7. The fort base comes after a long walk with amazing scenic views of natural sheets laid on gigantic pieces of land. One can find tiny beautiful water bodies in this route. Travelers love playing in this area. Apart from Trek, this falls a great place for a one-day leisure tour too. Then begins the Trek! The Fort initially offers challenging paths and later the windy atmosphere cools you down. Hence, you will actively move because of breezes and great views. After the trek gets completed to some extent, you find a steep slope. This is the most interesting part of the trek. The slope ascends with valleys and beautiful views on both of the sides. The mesmerizing experience will make you fall in love with Nakhind. After reaching the top of a pinnacle, you are 2K+ feet above. Here, you see the 'needle-hole' structure. The trek gets completed here. Descend journey is very simple and consumes very less time.
