  • I visited on a weekday. It was not at all crowded. Peaceful place. Don't bother the monkeys. Please don't litter🙏 and help the authorities keep it clean. Drive slow and carefully we can see wild animals crossing the road. Good parking space.
  • Great place, great views. Need to walk 200 easy steps to reach to the point from car park. Car parking on road, difficult to find in peak hours. Can get small snack items like Maggi, nuts, sweet corn, ice candy etc in small stalls 10-12 stalls. Ample Place to sit and have packed lunch if you carrying, a group of 60-70 can get accommodated.
  • If you love nature then you must visit this place. You will find the stunning look of western ghats from here. Whole place is nice and clean. But people said the place is having totally different view during rainy season.
  • Awesome view...dependent upon luck if clouds are cleared they only you are able to see full view from the top. At that points you are above the clouds and the whole scenario is below you. So if there wre clouds are there would could see nothing just clouds. You can wait for sometime for clouds to move so you get too see the view
  • The beauty lies in nature and that's true. One of the best places for vacation with friends and family. The cool breeze of air with the mesmerizing view of the hills will take the heart away.
