  • Most friendly and helpful receptionist ever, so lovely and great first impression , good parking facility,It was clean, stylish, roomy with excellent service i. Food was beyond good and great value for money and service in both places attentive and efficient. Room itself was well equipped and comfortable. I could go on but suffice it to say I was very pleased with my stay, and although short and sweet this time, I hope to be back for a longer visit in the future.
  • Great place with an awesome view. Reached the place on a rainy day, so couldn't get the true feel of the place. A good pick for short trips with friends and family
  • It's a place that can be visited as one day trip from munar, it offers even a good ride for bikers. The place have many cottages and resorts which offers night stay, fire camp, good food facilities also.
  • A very good view.last time when v went there no safety in the area but this time it was very very very safe with all fencing and safety requirements. As we saw in that view we can just see the way in which mountain climber can climb the mountain.each minute there is a change in was a very amazing view point.
  • It's pretty beautiful place it has beautiful view points and short hiking experience. I suggest youngsters can go and visit the view point. Old people don't try this because it's easy to reach the view point and you couldn't walk back i seen many people face reactions after hiking.
