- Carry extra food and supplies with you, facilities are not present at proper intervals.
- In case of planning to stay back, make sure you enquire about the availability of hotel rooms beforehand.
- In case, you're visiting during monsoons, the fort might be slippery and some parts of it may be closed because of the rains. Enquire before travelling.
