  • Awesome view of the mountains and the valley! Loved the sunset. Serene n peaceful. Soon after there won't be a soul left in the area. So one needs to be careful.
  • Awesome view of the mountains and the valley. Such a beautiful place on earth ❤. Looked like European pyramid. You need to take your car to reach this place which is quite far from the city, but totally worth it and a must visit. · If you have own vehicle, then it will be cheaper to travel in Mahabaleshwar. · You will see this place foggy most of the time. · Soon after, there won't be a soul left in the area. So, one needs to be careful. · Parking area is there and it's free, · There is no entrance fee. · Be careful about monkeys. · The Overall experience is Awesome for me.
