Overview of place: 

Are you a foodie, history buff, photographer or trekker?  If any of these areas interest you, this is the ride to go.   

Chitradurga Fort is a fortification that straddles several hills and a peak overlooking a flat valley in the Chitradurga District, Karnataka, India. The fort was built in stages between the 10th and 18th centuries by the dynastic rulers of the region. Chitradurga means Picturesque castle in Kannada, an umbrella-shaped lofty hill found here and with a little bit of imagination, you can see multiple creatures. 

But what you will like the most about this place is fortification techniques used to build this place. It is built in a series of seven concentric fortification walls and can give a tough fight to any unit trying to conquer it.  

On the way back if time permits we can cover Vani Vilasa Sagara which is the oldest dam in Karnataka and is very picturesque

Brownie Point  
- Jyothi Raj aka the Monkey Man performs at this fort where he attempts to scale a tall gate bare hands. He is the same guy who scaled Jog Falls
