Suitable for those who can walk about 1.5 hours. All you can do is enjoy the nature. At the end you will reach a viewing point where you can have a view of the mountains connecting each other. Recommended for those who love trekking! Morning and evening is the recommended time to visit!

It's a place for adventure loving youth men and women and not for the ones who are not healthy . Trekking and hilltop view is awesome. You should carry water and food with you. No food and water is available. You can drink water in forest at your own risk. It's good for young ppl.

From the last bus stop you will have to walk 2-3 Km then you will see a forest office , from there there is 2.5km trekking through dense forest... More
