Soon, we begin our hike and reach a tiny hill-top village that is placed midway to the summit. The village is home to a population of 200 tribal people & is accessible only on foot. This is where we will stop for a quick breakfast, some refreshments & most importantly a soothing hot cup of chai (tea) made by the tribals. After this, we will continue our hike towards the 2300 ft summit after climbing numerous hand-carved bastion rock-cut steps that were carved a few centuries ago when the pinnacle was used as a fort by a number of empires. On arrival at the summit, we will relax and breathe in the majestic scenery that the pinnacle offers. For lunch, we will hike back to the village for a wholesome & scrumptious meal. After a satisfying lunch & interaction with the tribals, we will head down & travel back to the city just the way we arrived. Other things to note This is a 2.5 hr hike going up while coming down is shorter. The hike can be considered as easy to moderate grade.
