Dhodap Fort

Dhodap Fort is situated near Dhodambe village, on the Satmala range in the Nasik region of Sahyadris.

The top of the fort was built using a combination of dressed stone and brickwork. The fort played an important role during the Peshwa period. It was here that Raghobadada Peshwa hatched a plot against Madhavrao Peshwa.

There is a tank with an idol of Lord Hanuman and a tunnel 5 m wide. The fort has a pointed cliff named Shembi. You can find caves at the base. One end of the fort shows a domical structure. The eastern face shows a fearsome cliff named Ikhara which is ideal for rock climbers.
