  • Tranquility of this place is addictive. And the scenic beauty is mesmerising, if the weather is clear one can see the beautiful hills shining roads which seems like a work of artist on the hills, clouds floating below are treat to the eyes!!..weather is never consistent and rains are frequent! U might wanna take eatables and water along with u as they r not available there on the top. Happy Travelling !!
  • Best place to relax and take your time off from your busy schedule. Heaven for nature lovers. Amazing view with amazing climate all around. Greta place to hang out with friends and family. The place is been well maintained and clean.
  • A great place to be with your friends and your loved ones. The place is usually covered in mist and its such a pleasant experience to spent some time watching those misty mountains. There are 22 hairpins all the way to the point and its best to have a ride on a motorcycle to experience the nature at its best.
  • A real refreshment from the city life. It's more like a weekend spot to enjoy with your family or friends. Best for bike rides. The way and all the hairpins. You will like it. Also the sunset is something extra ordinary to see from that top
  • Amazing place to hangout. Good staff and amazing view. Bring food along as the place doesn't have any good hotels. You just get snacks and drinks. But it's a great experience!

Where to stay in Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum)

The main accommodations in Thiruvananthapuram proper lie to the north of the main train station. Ranging from boutiques set in colonial-era buildings to side street youth hostels with dormitory-style rooms, the choice throughout the city covers a wide range. However, plenty of visitors to Thiruvananthapuram choose to stay closer to the coast instead, arranging day trips to the city itself. Nearby beach resorts, such as Varkala and Kovalam, rank high on visitors' lists, with abundances of boutique hotels, beach huts, and resorts.
