This fort was built by Kempegowda in the 17th Century AD. Not much of the fort remains today. However, trekking up to the top, with superb views of the surroundings, is a thrilling experience in itself. This trail is the trickiest of all Navadurgas, and it is advised only if you are an experienced trekker.

Some general points to keep in mind during the above treks:
1. Try to avoid monsoon, since the rocks tend to become slippery.
2. Start the trek early in the day, since the temperature becomes hot during the afternoon.
3. Carry food and water with you, as some of these places may not have much facility for food.
So, break the monotony by trekking up one of these 'Navadurgas', and feel yourself to be a part of history!
