  • Excellent place for a days tracking or could even plan night halt but do remember to carry sleeping bag or per your convenience. Fort does offer a very good view from different vantage points, which is amazing on a clear day. There is food and water available on top, however do carry what you can.
  • Nice fort. Good for trek. Trekking should be started either late in the evening or early morning. It gets quite hot in summer
  • Make sure you don't throw plastic when you go there. And carry your own plate and glass. Huge, grand! Make sure you reach early or all good spots to spend night get taken. There are enough village people who offer meals. If you happen to carry your ingredients then they will cook it for you.
  • The best enjoyable part of this trip was tracking .. tracking and tracking. Tracking on Chorwat is the most adventures thing. It would take 3 to 4 hours to be on this beautiful fort. And it will take 3 hours more to see Machee... But way to the the Balekilla is the most critical highway of this journey. You will definitely enjoy it.
  • Cool camping and trekking experience. Good food options at the top though it would be better not to camp near the temple...other groups can be very irritating and create a nuisance
