So I visited here about 2 weeks ago and although a very nice view, it has been very much over commercialised. When you go there are swarms of people there making it near impossible to take a photo without someone's head popping up somewhere! You also get a view of the same rocks from guna cave which has a view... More

Pillar Rock are the three rocks close to each other which look like 3 fingres together.There is an entry fee to enter the park which is open till 5.30 pm. The pillar rock can be seen from outside also as its only the top portion of the Rock to be seen.

I suggest visiting as early as possible, especially in the summer, as the cloud rises up out of the valley and completely obscures the view by about 1100.
