It’s been such a long time I haven’t been on a backpacking ride, so decided to check out the beautiful manjarabad fort situated in the small coffee estate town of shakelespur. Though I have crossed the town many times but never had a stopover. So packed my back & catch the Govt bus. I told the conductor to drop me near the fort. As I reached I asked the tea vendor the route towards the fort, he instructed me the path. As soon I reached the top of the fort it’s a WOW feeling it’s the most beautiful fort built by Tipu sultan. This fort is constructed 1792 AD .The fort being always covered by mist & commanding views of the landscape was named manjarabad by Tipu .On the return journey I had taken a lift on an overloaded iron ore truck, it was the thrilling roller coaster ride of my life.
