  • You have to take a left turn from the market road. Steep road with steps provided. Splendid view. You can see a few habitats staying there.
  • Nice place. Visit once and feel refreshed. Family place so nothing to worry.
  • Not the best view but a good one only for clicking pics.
  • Nice Place. Any one who requires peace please visit
