This fort and environs were quite a hike straight up hill and up a lot of stairs, but the views were incredible, and it's clear from the top that this fortress could never be taken.

This is well worth visiting but be prepared for quite a climb up. Best to visit early or late in the afternoon as the heat can be intense.

Daulatabad fort is a real nice structure. Be prepared to do mild trekking to reach the top of the fort, but it is worth it. Can see the whole city from the top and the views are amazing
