  • Torna fort is an amazing rock structure that can be scaled on foot. It is a medium to difficult level trek. It has beautiful historic fort like structures that remind us of battles of the past. To a certain extent there is road available, rest has to be done on foot. A proper mud trail is available for the entire route. The natural scenery is really breathtaking especially in winters. A temple above and some associated structures can offer shelter during the noon or night. Have fun friends !
  • Excellent trekking experience. Parking space available at the base of the fort. An adventurous trekk. Ascension takes around 3-3.5 hrs. Should start early in the morning. Couple of locals sell water, buttermilk & snacks items on the way to fort and couple of others serve food on the fort. Nothing much to see on the fort but the views are beautiful. Overall an adventurous experience.
  • The trek to this fort is medium endurance. Vehicles can only go till the base village (velle)of this fort. From there on you have to trek all the way to the top of this fort. It takes around 2.5hrs to reach the top. There are a couple of steep climbs , railing have been installed along the difficult patches of the trek to ease the climb. Avoid summer day trek.
  • Have trekked it at least 7-8 times. Best time is monsoon but if you want to trek in other season then go for night trek on a full moon night. Stay on the fort overnight and return in morning. Superb view of sunrise from the top. Not to miss.
  • The level trek is medium to hard depending on season. In rainy season it will be very difficult. It takes normally one and half to reach the top. Its best to start very early in the morning. The view from the top is awesome. You will get lemonade on the way to top. There are few villager who can serve tea , lemonade , light breakfast and mineral water.
