Kavaledurga Fort – A day Visit with Family [27.08.2016]

Place always vary from time to time; most glorious period is Monsoon. Yes! indeed, I had been at Kavaledurga in summer and monsoon. 
The first visit was in summer with friends while attending the Yakshagana play at my friend home, this time in peak Monsoon with my kid and better half on weekend 27th August 2016.

Kavaledurga is ruined fort near Thirthahalli [Shivamogga District] which is around 60 KMs away from home [Muniyalu]. It was my first skill test of Agumbe Ghat ascend driving and I completed successfully.
My son “SUMUKH” had lot of questions during the journey. We parked the car in the parking lot, continued our small trek towards Fort.  

Rain was pouring heavily in between a small break.  I had not seen even a single vehicle or traveler on the way.
Sumukh started his innocent queries and which thoughts were passing in his mind. “Why we are going to this fort when people are not there? What are the wild animals in this surrounding? If snake come out bite us? if thieves attack on us?......” endless.  Really, he was scared about the lonely place with monsoon heavy rain.

Our conversation went on and reached the fort.  Lonely fort was looking so beautiful decorated by green. We spent good time, son and better half were so happy to taking this wonderful place. 

Thought not to take risk, started descending journey and reached home safely before too dark.
