More about Chanderi

Chanderi is a majestic massif, 800 metres (2,600 ft) high, that stands out as one approaches Vangani station on the way from Badlapur to Karjat by train. Joined to Chanderi by a column are a group of four pinnacles called Mhasmal.[clarification needed] The Chanderi-Mhasmal duo is very prominent and can be seen from far-away peaks in the Sahyadris.

Chanderi looks close to Vangani, but the better approach road to it is from Badlapur. From Badlapur Station hire an auto-rikshaw up to Chinchavali Wadi. From there you have a walk of about 45 minutes to the base of Chanderi Fort. To reach the above takes about 2½ hours and to the summit takes another 45 minutes.
