    Very scenic. It's even more beautiful during monsoon season. We visited during July and it was absolutely gorgeous. Per person entry ticket is 10 Rs. Parking charge is 20 Rs. There is a jeep that will take you to the summit from the welcome center and costs 20 Rs per person. You can also hike to the summit from the welcome center. I believe it is around 1 km. There are tea and snack shops near the welcome center and the summit.

    Such a thrilling place located in the western ghats. Vehicles reach very near to the tracking point. On reaching the summit we get a breathtaking view of the mountains bathed in mist and constant refreshing wind. Another point worth mentioning is that the entire area is kept free of litter and plastic and lighting arrester installation is almost done.

    Awesome look of the rock. We hired a car to go up to the parking lot. Then took a local shuttle to go up to the look out point. You can also walk up this last 1.5km part. Our view was partly obscured by the fog. Try morning times before 11am before the fog sets in.

    This is art of nature. The wind up there , view from the top everything will touch you. The slopes are bit steep so you have to take care while trekking. You have got very cheap jeep service (20 per person) to the top. The place is not at all crowded and you can sit there as lomg as you feel like. (no time limit).
