  • An exotic walk through the woods. A steep climb. The path maintained very nicely. Gives a nice eerie feeling. Takes the breath out by the time you reach the top. But worth visiting.  more »
  • This is one of the best place to visit in this area. The best part is that you will have to walk through the Jungle to reach this place. Do not be scared as ASI has made nice foot path to walk. Moreov...  more »

  • This is an awesome location, a trek for kilometer & half, you will enjoy the walk through the dense forest, and once you finally reach, you will be amazed. Not much of ancient architecture to see, most of it is destroyed, but it is well maintained and very few tourist visit the place, makes it quite and enjoyable.
  • needs to be preserved can be developed though if you like old ruins and history you will like this place
  • We walked out to the ruins from Pelling, it's not so far and the road is not so busy so it's a nice walk through the pine forest. The ruins are actually much more interesting than we were both expecting. There's no admission fee at the moment so it's free to walk around. There's lots of benches so you can sit down and relax atr after your walk and just take it all in.
  • Treak Through the forest take you to a beautiful place with an ancient History.
  • Awesome place, but take care with leeches if it's wet season. Nice views and calm place. It's worth it!
