Very nice slopes. Great drive but hurts the back since there are no proper roads and it's a drive over stones. Once at the top, the views are simply amazing. Takes about 4hours from the start of the trip but very adventurous and worth it.

You cannot go in normal car. It will be very difficult. Better to hire a jeep and go. Journey is through a tea estate and proper road is not there

hi, I heard sunrise time is best to visit this place. due to some plan constraint, we can visit during sunset. is it still okay? or is it better to modify plans?

During sunrise you would be able to see the low lying clouds formed due to condensation ,which is an altogether different experience , but if sunrise is not possible , do visit any time but visit .
