It is good place to visit. You will get a great view after the climb . Better to visit in winter. There is a parking slot at the bottom and will get a jeep service and there is a small trekking need to get into the destination . It’s better to do not cross the barriers.
Superb place to visit. Definitely worth visiting here. The views are really mind-blowing. To reach here sometimes cars will not be allowed to go to the top as there is limited parking is available, if though it will be little hard to climb up the hill, but still its worth. Best time to visit is evening 4-6pm. Or else morning, but personally i prefer evening.
