Good for a look see, just a valley and some rocks if you like that kind of a view. On a clear day you can see the waterfall about a km away, a lateral view.

Must visit pillar rock, as the view is wonderful. On a cloudy day the ambiance is very romantic. Very nice place for photographers. There are quite a few shops around this area where you can buy chocolates and other local goods.

An absolutely beautiful work of nature! The sight of the two pillar rocks are just breathtaking! However, tourists do litter around the place and throw bottles over the cliff and that's a put off!

It's like unfolding awesomeness in front of your eyes at the pillar rocks. They charge INR 5 for entry but totally worth it. You will be lucky if you get a glimpse of waterfall on the adjacent rocks for which the mist has to favour

The view is obviously amazing. The place is well managed. There are a lot of chances to miss the view and so it will be nice to visit during noon!

A great place to visit if its not misty. If you are visiting Kodaikanal for sight seeing then make it during the spring season

We had almost missed these pillars due to the mist. There are about three pillars ,not too tall and since i had seen grand canyon ,during my visit to Las Vegas nothing special to be told about this point. The view from this point ,during a clear day will be of interest to a nature lover.

One of the best places in kodaikanal. But the only drawback is they are covered with mist all the time. I waited almost an hour to get a picture. But worth the waiting :)
