Salher is the highest Fort and the 2nd highest peak of Maharashtra. The Kalsubai range is highest range of Maharashtra with Kalsubai as the highest peak. But Salbari Dolbari range comes second in Rank in the average height with Salher as second highest peak of Maharashtra Situated on such range adjacent to Salher-Salota forts, Mulher is counted as one of the strongest forts from that area. Mulher with Hargad and Mora forts around forms a trio and this is what made it impregnable. The Mulher, largest of three the three is about half a mile in extent. About half way up, after passing three gateways, comes a rolling plateau with the ruins of what must have been a considerable town. There are still some houses, a mosque and some cisterns and reservoirs.

Today is big day full of Trekking! Hoping that all you guys have warmed up yourselves in the past week with some exercise, we have tea and some biscuits and start our trek!
05:00am - Start the climb for Mulher Fort.
07:00am - After a pretty easy climb, we reach the beautiful Someshwar Temple now. Its structure will amaze you, as the underground room will be cold and artificial snake inside it will bring a chill down your spine. After a small halt, we start climbing further to reach the summit of the Fort.
09:00am - You will be at the TOP! The view will mesmerize you! We will now have some snacks to our energy back, know about history and geography of the place, and start descend.
10:30am - We take a quick detour to visit the Ganesh Temple. The Ganesh Temple is generally used by trekkers for the night halt, as it has a huge water tank right next to it. We are lucky we are visiting it in the morning. Evening visits to this temple give new trekkers a chill. It looks scary.
12:00pm - We should reach the base by noon.
12:15pm - We start our short travel to the base of Salher Fort.
01:00pm - Lunch break at a hotel.
02:30pm - The mighty Salher Fort will be right in front of your eyes. You have to conquer it! We start trekking now.
06:00pm - As you trek, plateau after plateau, you will see the Sun peak at you from between Salher and Salota. As the sun sets, we reach the 1st Darwaja of Salher after climbing a handful of stairs. A row of almost 15 deserted caves welcome you. We take a short break here, have limbu sharbat to get rid of the cramps, and start walking further.
07:00pm - Finally! We reach our dream house, the caves of the fort which will provide us shelter for the night. We still have to climb further for about 20 minutes for the summit. But in our experience, the best place to see the sunrise from, is the top! So it’s time to relax now…
08:00pm - Hoping that you have regained some of your energy, you will now help the leaders to cook food. Dinner time!
09:00pm - Let there be Bon Fire! As one of the leaders keep the place well lit by continuously managing the bonfire, it’s high time, the philosopher in you gets to display his skills.
Sitting under the stars, surrounded by raw nature, the barren rock of Salher, and a tired soul. This is the perfect combination for some meaningful talks, debates and songs.
11:00pm - Good Night.
