  • Nice and a calm place which suits for everyone. So much of scenic views are there and the place is also maintaining nicely. Boat rides and a cable cars are available for extra fun. Ideal for groups for long walks.
  • Traveling here at around 8/9 am on a misty day is the best experience. The road is rough. A good 4 wheel drive will get you there easily. Other vehicles can come as well but they must have a high ground clearance.
