  • The view of the pillar rocks are great. The wait to see the most lift and get the elusive shots of the pillar rocks is an experience in perseverance. The sight was other worldly and wonderful. However, it is very crowded and recommended only if you are not claustrophobic.

  • Majestic rocks stand tall and strong. Deep valley view with fog takes you to heaven . Visited during December so mostly foggy. Tried four time to see these view point but missed with fog covered those pillar rocks . Finally on the way back home tried again and get to see those only few minutes and again fog hold to it . Apart from fog this place is a must visit to admire nature

  • Absolutely scenic if you are lucky. We reached when clouds covered the rocks. Within minutes though it moved away and we were able to capture an awesome timelapse. Reminds one of the mountains from James Cameron's Avatar

  • The rocks were covered in fog and we had to wait for more than 1 hour to see the rocks. The view was undoubtedly beautiful one. But isn't a must visit place according to me. Visited on November last week.

  • Breathtaking viewpoint. It is best during summer or under bright sunshine. During mist or cloudeness visibility is poor , cannot enjoy the natural beauty.
