It requires lots of climbing through stairs but the view of fort and Daulatabad city from top is breathtaking. Layout of fort inside is amazing from the security point of view.

Daulatabad fort has witnessed history through different timelines. It's not that maintained but you will admire the fort construction, and you will understand how hard it is to conquer this fort in battle. Fort lovers and history lovers a visit is a must.

Suitable for the people who are looking for good trekking in Aurangabad Zone. It has 700+ steps but bit steep which tests your stamina & Fitness. Nothing much to say about the top, has some overall view of the city which is greenery.

Daulatabad fort is worth a visit, and visit the Bibi Ka Maqbara as well. You may also wish to see the Aurangabad Caves, which may seem not so interesting after visiting Ellora and Ajanta Caves. Another place is the Tomb of... More

The distance from Aurangabad is around 15-20 kms. Would take around 3 hours to have a good look. We went up to the canon point only. There is also more to explore via steep ascent for those who want to explore more but that... More
