The Society To Save Rocks is conducting a rock walk on Dec 21st, to Naya Qila at the Golconda Fort. Participants must assemble at NMDC, Masab Tank, at 2:30pm.

Rock walks are nature treks to different rocky areas in and around Hyderabad. They usually take place in the afternoon (and occasionally in the early morning) of the 3rd Sunday of every month. This week, the trek will include the controversial rocks of Naya Qila, and a walk up to the Robbers' Cave, an intriguing cave formed inside the hollow of a tree.

Presided over by Narendra Luther, the Society to Save Rocks aims to preserve and protect the spectacular ancient granite formations of the Deccan Plateau. To prevent the indiscriminate destruction of this natural, historical, and environmental heritage, a group of artists, photographers and environmentalists from Hyderabad has been working for the protection of this rocky landscape since 1992. In 1996, they formed themselves into a registered society, and since then, the Society to Save Rocks has expanded to include many other citizens, from students to housewives to businessmen and bureaucrats (300 members).

As a result of the Society's efforts it won the Heritage Award 2003 from the Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH), a Certificate of Excellence for service in the field of Tourism Promotion 2003 from the Government of Andhra Pradesh, and the National Tourism Award 2002/03 for the Best Non-Government Organisation (NGO) in the Sphere of Tourism from the Government of India.

No fees are charged. Sensible walking shoes, long pants and a cap should be worn. Drinking water is a must. The Society does not take responsibility for any accident or injury that may occur during rock walks. Walkers should heed safety instructions given by the guides.
