Location Details

This is quite easy and enjoyable trek which hardly takes 4 hours. In the Selbari ranges, near the Chankapur dam, Premgiri has maintained its stand since ages. There has been no movement of the army in the region of Premgiri. It has not witnessed any battle or an historic event which could place it in the map of history.
User Experience

While starting towards Premgiri , one sees a temple of Lord Hanuman which has a clean complex.The pathways here are quiet prominent which shows that the foot counts on this route are quiet high.From here, the stone steps carved out in the rocks lead to the top the fort.There are two water tanks scooped out in the rock.One of them is named Ram Kund and the other is named Sita Kund.It is a belief that,during their exile to the forest, Lord Ram and his wife,Sita had visited this place.There is a small temple of Lord Hanuman on the top too.The historic remains of the structure are clearly visible here.The forest department has undertaken the plantation of trees here recently.To the west of Premgiri lies the Kothya mountain.Towards te northeast are the river basin of Punad river and the fort of Chaulher.The Saatmala range are seen to the south.To the southwest are the Karhala mountain and the river Girna.
