Mahuli fort is one of the most popular trekking destinations; it is also a paradise for rock-climbers because of pinnacles Vazir, Vishnu, etc., given by the local trekking groups. Mahuli fort is the highest point in the Thane district. The forest surrounding Mahuli has been declared as a sanctuary. Besides an open Shiva temple there is a small perennial drinking water cistern on top, three caves of which the larger can be used as overnight shelter, like as on many other such natural hill forts of Maharashtra Western Ghats i.e. Sahyadri Range.
