  • Beautiful place to visit. The vision of the nature is quite tremendous from here. It costs ₹5 for entrance. Not a big place though. One will enjoy the nature sitting in a quite place like this. It also depends on the crowd during your visit. When I visited, there were very few people around and the calm surrounding gave a pleasant feeling.
  • Nice place to visit. Preferably in the evening.. evening some crowd will be there.. good seating arrangement. Good views in the evening... Musical fountain present.... As usual you will be bored after some time... Well Greenery and flowers maintained...
  • Awesome place to experience a heights with cool breeze. You have different view points at single place. If you visit here @morning 6 AM , you would really experience awesome breeze. After 10AM you can easily spend 4-5 hours. Snow will come near to you if you go there in early mornings.
  • Very nice place to visit in the evening and see the beauty of Coorg. It is a very famous tourist attractions and many people from all over the world come to see this place. This place is a basically a garden and a beautiful scenic place. This place offers a toy train and it is really worth doing that. This place is quite hygienic and the place offers even a restroom.
  • It's supposed to provide the most breathtaking view of the sunset, because the King had erected up this place especially for watching the tinted sky during sundown with his queen(s). Sadly, it provides nothing of that sort- it has a couple of steps that lead you to a viewing gallery like structure guarded by rails where you can pretend to be enjoying the fresh air and the gorgeous view but ironically it's blocking your view and disrupting the background if you're clicking pictures of the valley. The good idea however is to step aside a little from that place and squat on the seating areas made adjacent to it and "enjoy" the lush green view. Oh, and the sunset is nothing more than a usual orange tinged sky that you see everyday, but more distorted since it is usually misty up there, so if you come here especially for witnessing that then you're going to be very very disappointed.
