Fascinating Spots :

      The top summit of this fort is a large plateau. Once you reach here continue walking towards the small raised hill which is seen afar. While we are on the trail, one path goes to the left towards a cave named “Siddhagufa”. Continuing on the path ahead we come across a diversion. Take the right one to reach a temple in 15 minutes. This is the spot from where the river Godavari originates. After seeing this proceed to the path on the left which takes us to another temple in 10 minutes. It was here that Lord Shiva made Godavari River to land on our Earth by lashing his long strands of hair. There are remnants of structures on the fort. Anjaneri and Harihar forts can be seen from the top.
