  • At a height of 800ft this fort has a beautiful view from the top. Climbing to reach this height for a exceptional view is worth it man ! Carry water bottle because there is no water facility during the Trek. My advice will be to visit this place along with 2or more members for your own safety. Enjoy 🙂
  • Good but NO toilet available... Only few security here... Some local guys drink alcohol top of mountain and near building.. Be prepare and well planned come to this historical place. Pls avoid come single or two person. Reason for unwanted any reason. Come to total family and enjoyed your trip happily. Otherwise its beautiful places...
  • It's very good when you go on winter. We went during a mild rain and it was awesome. You have to walk a lot to get to the top of the hill, the way is very cool with lots of trees, small fortress. Beware of monkeys
  • It's a nice place to visit in winter as summers are too hot in this part. You will need one full day to complete this place as the fort is spread across a huge area and you will have to climb a small hill to visit a fort on top of it. This place will surely take you back hundreds of years when kings were ruling the land.
  • Good for short a holiday. Can be found out easily from Gingee Thiruvannamalai road. Car parking is available but limited. Difficult for elderly people since the steps are not planned and very less zones with shadow on the way to top but after reaching top you have enough space to relax. No water or foods available so carry enough items with you.
