Old civilization
Jan 2019
Once upon a time there lived a king and queen in palatial house with all ministers and workers on the hilltop capital of Kondaveedu fort ... now in ruins but but a glimpse of old architecture and some idols of worship in the midst of ruins. A tarred road now makes the asses easy and may be worth a one time visit

Amazing Ghat Road and beautiful view of villages
Jun 2019 • Solo
It was a nice trip on my bike. But unfortunately reached late in the evening. So I didn't visit the forte. As somebody told me that it's better to stay in the guest house and visit again. Overall enjoyed the trip. But my suggestion is to go either early in the morning or evening. You won't find food or water on the hill. The fort is almost ruined and only Kota gurjus left. But the weather here is too hot. Don't Rome when the sunlight is more.
You will find few building that were partially ruined.

Underwhelming

It was difficult to find the place since the locals didn't seem to know much about it and Google Map fails after a point of time. The auto, based on directions from the locals, took us in front of ruins of a temple. An old gentleman, who we later found to be a scam, promised to show us around the temple and take us all the way to the top where the lake and fort reside for INR 500(negotiated to INR 300). He told us some stories of people being trapped/sacrificed in the inner sanctum of the temple and the government taking away huge quantities of gold from the temple but we couldn't find any such history going by the name he mentioned.
Despite being told very clearly that we wanted to trek all the way up and not take the car, he took us up via the car road and paid no attention to our queries. On reaching, we found extremely underwhelming ruins and an easy trek of about half an hour. There was some political demonstration going on top of the fort since it was Republic Day. However, no one could help us with a trail we could take to trek down at least. A child showed us a very steep trail that leads to a small ruin but there was no trekking trail from there. We gave up and came back down and paid the old man INR 150 bucks just for spending the time with us.

Fascinating history, fairly strenuous climb
Dec 2017 • Friends
A large group of us were attending a wedding and we took a morning trip to this wonderful hill fort, and associated building down in the village.

On a hot day this was quite a hard climb for the middle aged among us, but rewarded by wonderful views across the plains. Take plenty of water with you.

It's worth noting that there are not a lot of European tourists visiting Guntur District, so be prepared to be the centre of attention for selfies and the like
