These seem exactly like the one's we see in the Avatar movie. Although pillar rocks are visible from the road side itself, there is also a spot which is charged rs.2 per person for entry. Time to spend: 10-15 minutes

Nothing much. Just part of the package if you opt for day trips from tour agencies. Some natural rock formations.

Good view of rock which are in pillar shape. If there is mist you can see the rock but definitely enjoy the mist passing though

Natural gift for our eyes. Sometimes clouds covers the pillar rock. Hence, check with guides to visit on right time to avoid any disappointment.

Visit these places early in the morning (preferably around 8-9am) else nothing will be visible due to fog

The view would be more enjoyable when there is a light fog. The place needs better maintenance as it is poorly managed.

Traffic around the entrance of Pillar rock was horrible. I just wish people learn the self- discipline of parking at right places with minimum disturbance to others.
