We visited this fort on way back from Ellora. It was certainly worth visiting. Be ready to do some fort climbing.

Very nice fort, you need to put some efforts to climb it but it is worth to go above and experience the beauty of this fort. surprising no car parking charges and very negligible entry fees of rs.5, which I feel should be more and the same amount need to spend on preserving this great fort for long time.

One of the most impenetrable Forts of the World. It is constructed in such a way that the Enemy Forces would be deceived into taking wrong turns, because of architectural designs. just as they are thinking there is no wall, they end up in the Valley or into a long labyrinthine tunnel, where they get lost. Anybody missing would be... More

The bhool bulaiyya and dark ascent to reach the top are must explore for history buffs. Takes a fair bit of effort to reach the top and it is still under maintenance overall.

Half in ruins, half well preserved, Daulatabad fort is worth to explore. Monday afternoon it was pretty crowded with Indian tourists coming in school companies or families. However the flows of people are diffused over the large area, and one can find lonely places and moments. And the fort is also the residence for langurs, squirrels and bats. Grey langurs... More

You can reach the fort by any public transport or avail a private taxi. The Daulatabad fort can be a 1day trip including the khuldabad fort and Mhaismal which is a mini hill station. As all of them are on one route Best to wear your tracking shoes and a nice cap as there is a bit of walking around... More

The climb to the top of the fort is very nice. At a certain point you have to climb in the dark for a little while. From the top you have a nice view over the surroundings and you see the other walls for defense. Inside the first circle you can visit some nice buildings, like a temple and a... More

It's a beautiful trek up the hill with an amazing view of aurangabad. For people who like military history the fort is very well maintained and you can get to see a lot of things associated with military tactics there It has a lot of old cannon pieces with their history written, some of which are elaborately carved
