Kulanggad is a hill fort in Maharashtra. It is the highest hill fort in the state, with the summit rising to an elevation of about 4800 feet. The fort presents a very scenic view of the other peaks surrounding it.
The peaks of Kalsubai, Dhakoba and Naneghat, among others, are visible in different directions from the peak of the fort. The fort still has remnants of large rooms, which were used probably as storerooms. There is a considerably large cave towards the right side of the entrance to the fort. Water cisterns are available at the top, along with some water tanks. The ascent to the fort goes through neatly rock-carved steps.
