    Absolutely superb vegetation all around. Deers, birds and many meadows make it an unforgettable experience. When i was there it was steaming hot post rains. Small rain fed rivulets added to the scenic beauty.

    1. the place is not so good. 2. It was better few years ago, when there were no fixed track. 3. You can't reach to the deers. 4. You can see deers only if you are lucky.
