nothing much to do unless you have a planned agenda like trekking or camping. It would not be worth investing your day if you have not in a big group to do a sitout, camp for the night(full-moon), star gazing etc. Although just enquire of the latest rules of visiting at night!

loved by trekers for more than 100 yrs now, the sight of the fort is so fascinating that u cant stop praising the greatest chatrapati for his selection of site, u can have a full trek up or a partial after taking ur vehicles half way, curd,pakodas,bhakri and besan wud add to the completeness of the trip.

There are plenty of food options available on the fort. One may choose to drive right up to the fort. If you're feeling... More

If you are the trekking kinds who loves climbs and fantastic views .. this fort is for you. There are some tough trails, so be careful. Food is amply available on the route and the best is having food made by the local people - Bhajji, Omlette and pithale bhakar with Taak or buttermilk ... Just loved the expereince
