Beautiful place to visit between pine trees. Most beautiful is hide and seek of nature in mist. This place is generally misty and foggy during sunsets n sunrise Sometimes you have to wait for a lot of time to see the glimpse of those 3 long pillar bidding mist for ages.

The pillar rocks is a nice place to visit. The view is good when there is a slight mist around. This being a tourist spot has a lot of visitors but it is quite enjoyable.

You can witness those rocks exactly like how you see in the movie avatar. Too magnificent especially with the clouds moving next to it. Good spot for photography

These pillars are natural and are about 500 feet tall. These gargantuan pillars are a sight to be seen.

When we arrived, mist was flowing in & it created a lovely site. Although there was rush, you could still enjoy the view. Also, lots of curio/chocolate shops nearby
