Awesome and must visit place

It gives you 360 degree view. Echo point is very nice. Snacks and refreshments are not available. Sunrise and sunset seems very beautiful. Must visit place.

Nature at it's best

Dhoopgarh is a beautiful place, where you find yourself surrounded by hills as far as you van see. It's highest point of MP. The view from the top can't be expressed in words (You need to go there to experience it). The sunset side has pavilions built where one can sit and watch. You can enjoy the Sunset from there which is out of the world. There is also an old bungalow near it, which has been turned into a photo museum.

True Beauty of Nature. Awesome climate and can visit there at any time before 8. 00 pm. Good work by the M. P tourism department by maintaining the proper cleanliness over there. I admire the work done by the local staff thereby helping people visit the place.

Has a beautiful sunset

Its a beautiful sunset point where people go by gypsy (prepaid). There are also other 15-16 places for visit which is included in the same gypsy you'll pay for going to Dhoopgarh. The gypsy costs Rs. 1200 to 1500 in off season excluding tickets of visiting places. Rs. 3000 in season time which is during Shivratri.

Excellent place

Pachmarhi has very good tourist spots like Bee fall, Handi Kho, Panda caves, Ratan giri, Dhoopgarh, Satpura National park but Dhoopgarh is excellent highest peak of Madhya Pradesh. Please visit this place.

Great views of range

Framed by the Satpura range, the sun sets big and beautiful and Dhoopgarh being the tallest peak in the region is a wonderful place to view it from. The amphitheatre like seats mean that even if you have to share the sunset with a large noisy crowd, you'll still find room to park yourself.
