It is a fairly easy trek up the Kalyangad fort. A person from the village below offered to show us the water-filled cave along with his son for Rs. 100. We agreed on it. He had a big torch and came along with his young son. After seeing the cave we shared some sweets we had with them and gave the money. He started asking for more money. When we asked him the reason he said that he expected us to do some pooja inside the shrine and keep some money there which none of us did and so he was upset. Obviously he takes all the offerings kept inside by the devotees. We refused to give him any more money.
We did not meet any other trekkers while going up , but a few people arrived when we started descending in the afternoon.
