  • Good place to stay cool. very cool fast wind flow. sometimes you cant walk through. then you have crawl or grab something like a tree. if not you have seek some help from your team. Beautiful nature view above from the knuckles forest canopy. Most of times Riverston top covers from mist, cloud or misty rain. lovely place you have walk about 2km.
  • One of the best places to go hiking in central province. Due to the higher elevation, the temperature is cold. Best time to go there is around 10am so the mist fade away and clears the surrounding. Lots of endemic fauna can be seen specially the birds and reptiles. Few people sell refreshments and snacks as well as clothing for cold weather at the gate to broadcasting tower
  • Seriously this place and the environment is breathtaking. Road is not properly maintain so, difficult to drive cars. Few waterfalls out there too. if you are planning to cover the hole area within a day, go early. Very misty at the telecommunication tower and wind is amazing. The feeling is worth than the money you spend to travel there.
  • One of the best places to chill and relax. The beauty is breath taking. The road is a bit challenging. But the drive is worthy to take a glimpse at beauty of our paradise. Please do not pollute the environment. You cannot directly go to the tower by a vehicle. Walking is preferable rather than requesting permission to go by a vehicle.The place has enough parking slots on the spot. Please do not pollute the natural beauty of this scenic place.
  • Nice hike with beautiful scenery. But concerns about impacts on nature. About a 5.2 KM hike with a mountain to climb at the end. Path is paved until the end, after which you can climb up a short mountain. View is nice. Few concerns with increased local tourism, looks like need for some crowd control is there – saw plastic bottles thrown all over the place even on some tree tops. Also vendors selling mano and fruits in platic bags. Started to the hike around 11:45 AM and came back around 2 PM. Coming down met lot of unruly visitors under the influence of liquor, playing drums and singing. Some of them looked like too drunk to climb. Sorry to see nature getting destroyed by “monkeys” who do not know how to behave and where they are. No government or authorities seen – and I can see this natural wonder in knuckles getting split very soon. I would suggest avoiding weekends if you really want to enjoy the nature.
