  • My wife and I enjoyed this viewpoint. It is worth a visit. While we like the Karadiyur viewpoint more, this place is decent.  more »

  • Really cool place to visit.. it's little spacious and have the option of sitting on the edge with your​ legs hanging of the rock.. as there is railing on the edge, so no security risks.. good place to have some alone time.
  • Nice place and nice view. there was garbage everywhere. Not properly maintained place. The view was cool. Sunny days view from the point is good. The funside is the entertainment shops there. Balloon popping with Air gun and Arrow aiming practice, It was nice.
  • You can have a decent view of the valley below, no coordinated parking facilities are in place; but you will find parking for sure. If you enjoy the sound of nature, walk straight after going through the gate, there will be a broken path to the far side, no one goes there, but it is safe. You can enjoy the chirping of birds and the sound of wind. As far as facilities are concerned, it lacks a lot. But make sure you visit the place as you get an idea of the plains below and enjoy the nature.
  • This place is good. Only attractive thing is we can get a nice view of the valley from the top. Few shops available nearby in case you need water, tea or some local snacks.
  • A very small location with a nice view. Parking will be a constraint. Huge upward slope on approach. To take care while drivimg
