  • This place is really amazing! Took us some time to drive up and then hike through the hills to get to it, but it was worth every step! The hike through the jungle is quite pleasant, and while walking up the stairs to the top of the hill, you can take a break in one of the caves that are on the left of the stairs. Up on top the scenery is very beautiful and the main cave is quite breathtaking. There are a few shops that sell drinks and snacks as well as fruits. During our visit there were quite a few monkeys there and we got to feed them, that was an interesting experience.
  • Might Rocks with Mysterious Looks. It is better to Avoid Morning Time. It is better to reach the Parking Place latest by 2.00 pm and Start Walking. We have to walk about 1.5 Km. The path is small and it winds up through Rocks on one side and a Small Stream on right. While walking over Water, We should be watchful about LEECHES which are in plenty here Then We reach the Yana Rocks. We can go beneath the Rock to see a Natural Spring. Then the Path becomes Steps. After climbing the Steps we see the Cave and the Siva Temple. Puja can be performed. Then We can climb up the Steps and make a Pradakshan (Going around the Temple). The Steps takes us behind the Temple. The path descends and is precarious in certain portions and it is advisable for Hefty People and Small Children to Avoid this part. Then We emerge from other side of the Temple.
  • Loved it. Best part is vehicles are not allowed and hence the place is somehow preserved. The rock is of natural formation. There are two ways to reach it. Reach at the base, walk for 1.5 kms and then climb around 150 steps. Another is longer route via car, but less walking. No climbing of stairs. The temple is recently renovated and looks beautiful. The caves are good and walking barefoot adda to the excitement.
  • I recommend you to carry food with you, sometimes canteens doesn't prepare foods. Place is awesome
  • Lovely and beautiful place.. its worth visiting this place. You will enjoy the ride here.. Please take a two wheeler as the roads are narrow but yeah lil challenging. Awesome place.
