First time I went up here I'd only been in the region a few days. I was shown here by a member of the family I was staying with. We made it an outing for myself, my friend Babu, and another younger kid. We had food and plenty of water. Due to my level of fitness I found it rather easy to do the climb up, but the others in the party had to stop quite often to rest, catch breath and drink. We set off quite late in the morning, about 10:45. It was about 1pm by the time we reached to actual Fort. The scenery was breath taking. Well worth the climb up. As it was just at the end of the rainy season, the climb through the jungle was very humid, but once we reached the ridge it was getting cooler, and it was a little misty in places, but nothing that posed a hazard. Upon reaching the summit and the Fort the climate was a lot cooler - more acceptable for myself but my friends were saying it was cold. Having explored, for what there is to explore, we sat down for lunch, which was heartily devoured. I must warn of the monkeys at this point. They are right little baskits. Even with us sat near our food they managed to sneak up and steal some. They even ran off into the jungle with the bag we carried the food in. Luckily our back pack with water and camera in was nearer to hand and they never got that. The climb/trek/walk down was equally enjoyable.
On my second visit to the Fort I went up alone. I set off earlier in the morning, and managed to beat the heat of the day. Once again, the jungle humidity was the worse part of the trek, but once on the ridge it was cooler.
My third visit, I again went alone. Carried only one bottle of water and no food. This visit was more of a beasting exercise session than the previous two visits. I wanted to see how quickly I could reach the top and then return. Total time was about 3 hours from start to finish, and that included resting at the top and admiring the scenery for about 45 minutes. A truley amazing experience. I'll most definately be going to the Fort again when I next visit my Indian family. :-)
