Walked from the market right up to Wilson Point. Great walk - about 45 mins. Excellent view from the top. It was misty, but beautiful. In the summer, it is a better spot to see sunrise and sunset from and also less crowded.

It is a quiet point to enjoy the sunrise. Not many people visit this place. There are some bunkers sort of place, where you can sit and watch the sunrise along with valley & mountains. Chilly wind flows there so make sure to cover your ears to avoid getting sick.

This is a mini plateau and the tower atop it is visible from far away. If you expect a panoramic view, you'll be sorely disappointed. Have been there to this point on a number of occasions and at all times have found that Tourists stay away from it. It is typically frequented by walkers from nearby hotels. Definitely not a...

Tip 1: Go before the time of the sunrise if you really want to capture the morning sun and see its beauty. Tip 2: At least in winters, please carry your warm clothes, the wind there is damn chilly. It can make you sick. Tip 3: If you are a photography enthusiast carry your best camera you have as the... More

It is a good 2K walk, from the main road and you can loop down to the other hand.You should plan to start at least 15 minutes before sunrise, so that you can catch the sun rising from between the mountain peaks. It is a lovely sight. The cold breeze and the quiet make it worth a visit. Solitude is... More

Driving up to Wilson point needs having sharp driving skills. At the end awaits a beautiful view. But, do be VERY CAREFUL. Roads are narrow.

I came to this point at around 5 Am in a January morning and awaited the sunrise, which was majestically in time. Carried snacks and hot coffee in a thermos and enjoyed the coffee smell in the fresh air of the morning. A great view over the valley in the first rays of sunshine and unforgettable moments to carry away.... More
