  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Sep 1, 2015
It is best short trip along with a hiking add on to this wonderful scenic place. It is must see for kids so that they can learn more about the nature. It is advisable to wear a good pair of shoes for hiking. Also please safeguard your valuable and stuff from monkeys. Food and herbal drinks a must to have. Overall a family trip to plan for a one day picnic.

Grab the binoculars and head here to see the awesome birds. Just do not carry food as there are lot of monkeys here, they snatch food if you carry do not open until you get to the top.
