  • Wow amazing. I gone 2 time there. I feel to visit this place every year in my lifetime.
  • Approximately 7 Km from Athirumala Base camp. Very adventurous with rope climbing. Very steep up hill climbing along the downstream. Fresh elephant dung seen along the bamboo bushes. Have your breakfast along the way. Keep your hands free for climbing. Windcheaters A MUST. Guides on top of the hill near the Agastiyar statue are very friendly and helpful. Start the return trek before 12 noon. Start early reach safely.
  • It was fentastic experience. Approximately 18 Km trekking in two days gives you a unforgettable experience.
