Too commercial. It used to un touched natural formations few years ago. In the name of modernization they added artificial crazy colored lights everywhere. Too many wires hanging everywhere. Won't recommend if are in search for natural beauty.

Super place, managed by APTDC,accessible by road/rail. Picturesque travel by road/ rail.About 10000 feet above sea level. Train passes through 70 odd tunnels. There is a transparent coach in the train to this place.
