It takes around 3 hrs. for beginners to reach the Fort located at the top of the hill, the journey is perfect and one can enjoy the nature.

Trekking to the Fort:

                A regular trekker would take 1 hour to reach the top. There are 3-4 spots built along the way to rest or have lunch. The trek is completely safe even for families who can walk/hike for a few hours.  Although the fort is small, you will definitely get a sense of accomplishment once you reach the top. Follow the same route to head back to the base.
