We started early morning around 6. It was awesome drive on ORR (Outer Ring Road) up to Ghatkesar (~ 80 kms) and then yummy breakfast before conquering the rappelling FEAR and the technique .. The trek up to the fort was 600ft and the climb down was 300ft. It was an exhilarating experience in Hyderabad. Rappelling is not that difficult provided you get the technique right. This was my first time rappelling, and i must say I enjoyed it thoroughly.
