User Experience

The Southern face of Bhilai is almost vertical.The Northern face is easier to climb. There are no entrance gateways or stone carved steps at this fort. The way is quite slippery. While climbing,one may feel scared looking back. At the foothills is a water tank carved in the rock. There is a way to the top besides this. Except for the water tanks and caves there are no historic remains at this fort. There is no fortification, bastions or entrance gateways. The top of the fort is quite small. But seeing the view of the neighboring region and forts, one may get lost in the beauty.To the North is the range starting from Salher, Salota to Mulher, Hargad. To the South is Chaulher and to the South-East is the Pimpalagad.
