You'll encounter numerous waterfalls as you head towards the summit for a spectacular view of the entire area. It may take about three hours to reach the summit, so carry extra food and water with you, and dress warmly for the mountain climate. At the foot of the hill, you can also find India's largest dam. Besides examining the tropical vegetation, you may also encounter monkeys, deer, wild boars, and elephants as they roam the forest.
