  • Awesome place at such a height... Reaching at this height .. great... And after reaching...after seeing the scenic beauty...it is double great... Great place and view for photography.. City looks fabulous from this place...

  • Just loved this place. View and climate up there was fantastic. Would suggest to skip this if it's rush hour and you are accompanied with kids.

  • Moving to peak and watching around hill (city below) is a wonderful experience. But need lots of patience to teach by steps. Not much exciting, but can visit once

  • View from the top of the hill.. WOW its one of the best experience i had.. must visit place. Its last point for mount abu visit. Spend almost 2 hours. Best ever photos were taken at the end of the Temple.

  • Loved it. It was real fun driving to the top and clicking few photos around the place. Superb place. Great sight.
