It will be a good idea to hire a local taxi to reach the fort. If your driver is well familiar with the route then take your car to the entrance of the fort, otherwise you can park the car at the foot of the fort and hire a jeep from there to reach the entrance.

The jeep charges Rs. 450 (per car) for two way ride and Rs.50 extra for the toll tax (only once).

You will find a lot of Elephants here but if you like/love them then do not opt for Elephant rides. The Elephants are not treated very well and are forced to work. Such rides are now available across the world at many attractions.

Although you will not require a guide after reading this post but in case you would like one then they usually charge Rs. 350 (for the group) for a 1.5 hrs to 2 hrs tour.
