"I call it 'the edge of the world'. Beautiful view point. Should be very careful to reach the tip. There is a 20 min walk to this view point from where vehicles can reach. The terrain is little though. Everyone gets tired walking to this place but it's worth the effort. "

"Beauty lies in the nature it is 100% true when you get this place, you see tress which are there from centuries, I loved the scenery Caution : people with leg pains and joint pains avoid this place. The way is too narrow and to deep to climb back.. I suggest only youngster can go.. "

"It's gud if u love trekking. The path is tricky but the view is nice. It's a very tiring trek and time taking, at least 3hrs to go and come back. Better to go and repent than not go and repent. "
