Someone has said "Don't climb mountains so that the world can see you,climb it so that you can see the world." And While I was headed  towards the top of Salher fort,I genuinely found out what this sentence means.I felt so surreal while walking towards the summit.And at the top,I realised that climbing mountains has never been about others.It has always been about myself and Being at the top of Salher only reiterated this Truth.

So,How do you Go to Salher..?
-Salher is accessible by two main base villages.Salherwadi and Waghambe.Maldar is also base village but the route is quite longer than the other two.I will suggest you to ascend from Salherwadi and Descend into Waghambe Village through the ridge between Salher-Salota Fort.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT:
You Have to Go to Nashik From Both Pune And Mumbai and from Nashik you have to reach Taharabad.As this place lies on the route to Nandurbar,there are lot of MSRTC Buses going towards it. From Taharabad also public transport is pretty frequent and also very affordable.

-The best Part about the fort is intricately carved Entrances which will take your breath away by their intricate designs and Top notch Accuracy.
