Rudkhan Castle reviews
I really enjoyed this area, the whole nature including beautiful and lush forest, the castle and every step surprised me. It was a difficult climb (more than 1300 steps), but it worth it. after... more »
One of the greatest experiences through my whole life! Loved every one of the steps that it took me to visit the castle. No only Ghal-e Rudkhan itself, but the long stairway is one part of the beauty.... more »
The Castle itself is an ordinary castle but the environment is very nice. The problem is you need suitable shoes because there is a lot of stairs from car parking to the Castle and the route itself is very slippy. Sometimes a mountain climbing stick is useful. There are hawkers that offer some bamboo sticks.
Historical and mysterious place mist of the time the whether is foggy, affter walking across too many steps you will reach to a castle with out exact data about it and different story people say about that. Landscapes are really amazing you are in central of jungle.
