The ride in a Jeep for 24kms in a complete offraod is just amazing along with the view of the Western Ghats through the open Jeep. It's an experience you should have. The view is amazing from 4600 ft. more »
The place is excellent but the road - oh my god! If you want to visit this place then i will recommend you to visit other places first. Keep it as last tourist spot. Otherwise after visiting this one probably you will not have enough energy to visit other. If your parents are old aged and you are with them then it is better not to visit just because of the bad condition of the road.
The view was so great.. Reach the other top of the hill to get massive view of coorg. We went on March that to around 8 am so we missed the clouds. I recommend going here. It will cost 250 per person for jeep.Jeep ride too awesome.
