Hike at Ghanpur Fort : A Day Outing
A one day program for corporate offsite, team building, group outings.
Khilla Ghanpur : This fort is located about 26 Kms away from Mahaboob Nagar District head quarters and 120 kilometers away from Hyderabad. This is a hill fort and was built by joining two mountains by Kakathiya King Gona Ganapa Reddy during the Year A.D. 1224. This fort has witnessed many wars between Bahamanis, Vijayanagara Kings, Bijapur Kings and Qutb Shahi Kings etc. The cannons which still exist have been kept on the top most side of the fort. One can also see palace and ministers houses ruins.
The name of Ghanapuram Khilla came into existence from the name of Kakatiya Ruler Sri Ganapathi Deva. People believe that there are two secret tunnels inside of the fort. One is connected with the village in the bottom of the mountain and another one is connected with the Panagal fort.
The fort has beautiful rockscapes and greenery with 2 ponds which were used as drinking water supply for the fort army. There are many adventure activities that can be done here including rappelling, rock climbing, caving etc.
