  • Road to the destination is bit risky but awesome view once u reach at the top. Just be careful while going and choose early time otherwise too much fog gets there in monsoon time that you won't even be able to see the roads clearly..

  • It offers great view of the valley and which looks more beautiful in monsoons. You can see the Krishna river flowing through it. Not recommended for senior citizens and you need to walk down steps Thanks For Reading 📖

  • Nice place, but only when flowers bloom. Nice view from top of the abandoned structure there.

  • Such a beautiful place.. very secluded and there was nobody else except us... Very dense Forest type.. you don't have to walk much to reach the top after parking your car.. It was extremely foggy when we went there so couldn't get the view from the top.. but still it was worth it.

  • This point is not visited by many tourist. It does give very good view however the road to this point is lonely. Recommend to visit this point in group. The point has machaan structure but not recommend to use it as it apoears that its construction is incomplete and its risky to climb up. One can skip this point altogether.
