We were lucky to get superb views and the icing on the cake was the Hot Coffee in the freezing weather. Totally worth waking up at 4am for this even though I have been there twice before.

There is mountain climbing but no provision of protective gear which is essential, not even helmets and gloves for rappelling. We did it anyway for the thrill of it but my hands hurt after rappelling.

One of the most beautiful places on earth. Early morning start is so worth it when that first sun ray hits the mountains and the world awakens! Amazing! I would definitely suggest adding this to any bucket list.

You have to wake up at 3.00 am in the morg to visit this place. Roads are quite as like in any other hill station. But its all worth going there as the sunshine at the early morning will make it so awesome to see. worth visiting

You need to get up really early to be there. Seating is in the 3 level structure which looks like a typical govt. owned unit.
