Beautiful place to visit Lovely drive through the forest. But couldn't see anything due to dense clouds more »
It is a nice view point particularly if it is a sunny day. The view is very good. Only problem is parking your car. The local youths are making money for your parking without providing you any help. However you can enjoy the scenic beauty. While enjoying you can relish with a cup of coffee or boiled sweet corn.
A wonderful place to visit during peak season. A lot monkeys are happily jumping around. The climate will be be warm compared to the city. Best time to visit is during it's peak season.
