Spectacular view

The view is just breath taking, simply fabulous, must stop over. It may be difficult to spot in case you're new, since it comes on the way without much advertisements and boards. Look out for a watch tower type mini structure.

Not so great

A simple watchtower to view the scenic beauty of the forest. Animal sight seeing from this place is very difficult. Quiet place, so one can hear the calls from birds as well as animals.

Decent view, prettier in rains

Its situated in the premises of the Ambikanagar Power Plant and offers a panoramic view of the River Kali. It is named after an Englishman who discovered it during a hunting expedition. Try late evenings or early morning for a better experience.

Fantaboulous point

I have one word to this place ' fantaboulous' . One of the most amazing and beautiful place I ever came through . View from this point is just amazing . But photography at this place is not allowed which is unfortunate. Don't miss this place.
