Those looking for a weekend getaway can head to Torna Fort to be in the midst of nature and explore the ruins and its scenic surroundings. Although the attraction is open for visitors in all seasons, monsoons are deemed perfect to explore the fort.

Most advanced level trekking expeditions are arranged from the base to the fort by adventure groups. Those who want to explore the region but are not so keen on participating in an adventure activity can go on short nature walks with friends and family. Or they can reach the top of the hill by the roadways and explore the fort by foot. It is advisable that people be careful and stay together to assist each other. Proper footwear and a little bit of knowledge about the route would ensure a safe climb up to the fort.
