Very few places would be able to surpass the majestic combination of a hill fort with an amazing variety of wildlife surrounding it as is the case with Narnala. Here, the fort is considered one of the most imposing and intricate hill forts in the Melghat region, protected by the Archaeological Survey of India. Further, the region encompassing the hill has been declared a wildlife sanctuary and a protected forest, which is what makes it such a delightful tourist destination.
Narnala is located 60 kilometers away from Akola, a district headquarter in the Vidarbha region of Maharashtra. Situated at an altitutde of 940 meters above the sea level, Narnala experiences temperature varying from 35 to 43 degrees celsius and an annual rainfall that varies from 500 to 900 mm. As such, it does become extremely hot during the peak of summer but is otherwise pleasant throughout the year.

According to historical accounts, the fort is believed to have been constructed by the Gonds. When Ahmed Shah Bahamani (1425 CE) constructed Gawilgarh Fort with a view to obstructing invaders from the north frontiers of his kingdom, he also repaired the fort at Narnala. The fort has been under the rule of various dynasties, including Bahamani (1347-1527 CE), Nizamshahi (1490-1636 CE), Mughals (1526-1707 CE), Marathas (1674-1818 CE), and the Nizam of Hyderabad (1724). Eventually it was taken over by the East India Company in 1818 CE.
