My group and I had a great day tour, The transfer in the bolero was wow, the base village was nice that day there are many travelers take part on this tour some they came from the other states we talked an actually they were nice and friendly. We all had a great walk towards the fort this walk was not tough at all. Yes, reaching the top was tiring because it was a sunny day but the view from there was breathtaking, we get enough time to explore around and take pictures with the fellow traveler and the staff.
