Chanderi Top Trek

About the Fort:-
Chanderi fort trek is one of the difficult category treks in Sahyadris. It has all ingredients of a perfect trek i.e endurance, technique, skills. While many trekkers do the trek only up to the cave, very few actually go right on top of the fort. The way to the top is a combination of scree, exposures and rock patches, which make it real tough for the trekkers.
