  • Good photoshoot point. It's a place to visit during foggy times. Not a must see place, but a good scenic spot. 
  • ONLY ONE vehicle can ply through this gap. I went into the stretch only to reverse back for a couple of oncoming vehicles.It was quite misty as well! 
  • This place offers a great view of the valley and tea plantation provided the weather is good. Budding photographers can try their hands here to experiment with the exposure
