Once you reach the top after traveling through a step ghat road the adrenaline rush in your veins would sooth for sure. The views from the top are breathtaking, to say the least. The Jain temple at the top adds to it.

We reached this place with our private vehicle. You need to climb up a few stairs to reach the top. There is a Jain basti on top and a view point.

Breathtaking view from the top. Monsoon and winter would be the best time to visit. Mist will cover the area and the feeling is wonderful. The road towards the hilltop is narrow and need expertise in driving in that section. Care should be taken while...More
