Good enough track. Not suitable to go with small kids or old age people. Hire guide to understand otherwise no fun.

A nice place for the family that encourages trekking and walking. Reaching the place will be a bit challenging for middle aged women and they will like it. At the end, what you see is a piece of archeological importance with prehistoric engravings dating 6000 years ago. Contains some tamil brahmi script as well. At the end it is a... More

Well, this is a place to be if you really want to test your walking and trekking ability. Steep paths await you but then treat with beautiful view on top! I liked it more than my companions as I always appreciate walking.

We visited this place in the last week of December 2016. If you want to get to see the caves, please do not eat anything before 1-2 hours has you need to walk on very steep rocks and stair cases. Timings are 9 AM to 4 PM. This place is very nice to trek and you find a water pipe... More
