Salher is a place located near Waghamba village in Nasik district of Maharashtra, India. According to a legend, Lord Parshuram did his Tapascharya (asceticism) at Salher Fort. Salher stands adjacent to Salota Fort in Selbari Mountain Range in Baglan region, Nasik district of Maharashtra at the height of 5141 feet above sea level. Mulher-Mora and Hargad forts stand in the Dolbar Mountain Range. Salher is the highest fort in Sahyadri Mountains (1567 Mtr.) & second highest in Maharashtra, after Kalsubai. The route to Salota is fairly tough but manageable. The route is full of scree & at some places huge boulders have blocked the entrance. Mulher & Mora are adjacent to each other.
Salota Fort Information:-
The north - south range of the Sahyadri starts from Baalgan Baaglana in Nashik district. The range starting from north is called Selbari or Dolbari range. Mangi-Tungi Pinnacles, Nhavigad falls into the Selbari range while Salher, Mulher, Moragad, Hargad, Salota forts fall in the Dolbari range.
These forts are located on the border of dense forest of Daang region of West Gujarat and Baaglana region of Maharashtra. While ascending Salota one crosses three entrances. All these entrances are still in good condition. At the first entrance, towards right, there are two water tanks. At the last entrance, again towards right, there is one more water tank. The path from here takes us to the top of the fort through one more entrance. There are no remnants on the top of the fort. One can see a beautiful view of Salher from the top.
