One must visit this place...no there's nothing to see...only miles of green hills stretched out before you...you walk endlessly and have this out of the world experience!..there are some eerie conifers as well in the far interior...quite like the ones seen in ghost movies ;)

6 mile and 9 mile are good scenic shooting spots, had a good view of the hill side and a photogenic place where you can take good snaps with views.

Amazing place. Can't believe we have such beautiful places in India. Really don't have to travel abroad when we experience such lovely places. There is an entry fee plus camera charges but the same can be avoided as there is no one to check.
