Trekking Planning –

Trekking day –

I wake up early, as train was at 7 AM and i like home food, so prepared food and packed my tiffin box for having it on very calm place like a hill top. i reached railway station 10 minute before train time and took general ticket to Rayakottai from Byappanahalli station as it was a fast passenger train. Train was not much crowded and almost all people were local in train form nearby places. i reached Rayakottai at around 9:30 AM.

Way to fort was not that much difficult to found but had to ask 3-4 times to reach till starting point of trek and also using google maps. Condition of entry board was very bad, no maintenance of place on down the hill at starting point.

Trekking Difficulty- Moderate

So finally I started trekking up the hill, sometime it is straight up and sometime as usual walk. overall it was a moderate trek. midway i found some monkeys setting on top of big rocks. while trekking there was no one there on hill and i was the only one. without fearing about anything and anyone i was continued my trekking and reached a base hill top from there an awesome view of Rayakottai was visible as seen in the photo below.

There was a beautiful stone Murthi of Hanumaan  on the way to uphill and it was just amazing to see the rock structure out there and view from that place to around.

after going forward from here there are two ways to go, one is to go left and other one is to go right, left goes to temple in the lower hill of fort and right one goes to fort.

Turning Point of Trek-

After taking some time here, i again started going back till the path to right side of the hill that is going towards the fort. in between there is greenery and some nice to see rock structure to capture some cool pictures.

As there was no one around and i was alone on this big hill, i started thinking in other way that why on Sunday no one came here to visit this cool place. any way i keep moving forward, in the way there are some stunning view of all around places and far away i can see there was one big dam was there looking good but too far to see.

It was a cave like way up to the fort that scares if no was there with you and there is a wind sound that was cool but scary in that lonely place. as usual i was also got scared and started thinking to go back to Rayakottai. i clicked some pics and spent some time there before the starting gate of the fort and then started down trek to base.

Over all it is very cool trek to go if you are going in groups for hangouts and trekking as there will be no one on top, also sometime not looks quiet good for a total lonely place for solo trekking.
