This is our first short trek in this monsoon and our folks were pretty much excited for the weekend to begin. It was a Sunday morning when we started from MTP finishing our breakfast and reached the destination around 8 AM.
We took off-trail to reach the peak with few stops to capture the scenic beauty of mother nature, we would strongly recommend following the trail marked with signs to avoid situations like animal or reptile encounter.
Reached peak around 10 AM rested for a while, explored the fort for an hour, and captured moments. The main attraction here is to watch a train from the peak to pass to/from the station.
We trek back and reached the base around 12.30 PM and departed back to the city.
