We came to Pyati to check out the ruins of a fort on the hill. About a kilometer from the hill the cave was visible (see inset). We went to the village with hopes of finding a guide to show us the cave and the fort. People were too busy to oblige; we thanked them and left. We parked our cab close to the base of the hill and had Avalakki. Our cab driver, new to us, wasn't interested in our adventure, chose to stay with his cab. Malatesh and I found a way up, the climb lasted less than fifteen minutes.
