Hike @ Bhongir Fort

Bhuvanagiri

Bhongir, Bhongiri or Bhuvanagiri is a town.It is 48 km from Hyderabad. Bhongir is famous for its fort, which became prominent during the rule of the Kakatiyas.

The Fort was built on an isolated monolithic rock by the Western Chalukya ruler Tri-bhuvana-malla Vikram-aditya VI and was named after him as Tribhuvanagiri. This name gradually became Bhuvanagiri and subsequently Bhongir. According to legend, there once was an underground corridor connecting Bhongir Fort to Golconda Fort. Please note that this Hike doesn't intend to find that corridor :)

    It was a good hike..many first timers turned up which was good as new people are getting introduced to the concept of hiking and trekking(hope you guys continue with this :) ) . Some first timers even when they were totally down, got up and completed their hike which was what these hikes are all about..

    My best part was when Shabbir got down the last guy who was not ready to come down and wanted to take the stairs..putting confidence into a person, being patient and making them do what they were there to do finally ..

    A good team and a nice place overall.
