“Somewhat OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Worst roads, you would definitely want to return half way instead of reaching the top. Better to go to this place in the early morning as it will be little hot in the afternoon time.

“Serene”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

You have to take the trouble of taking the extremely bad road for about last 6 km to reach the view point, but it is worth it, and I enjoyed the bumpy ride as well :-). It is unusual to find such rolling hills - almost look like some of the grasslands in higher Himalayas. We were bit late though, so misseld the moments just before sunset (or rather those moments were while we were on that bumpy ride), but still it was quite good experience being there. 4x4 jeep is needed to go all the way up, but you can even go half way with ordinary car (at your own risk) and enjoy the beauty of the vastness. And yes be there about an hour before sunset in winters. Winters there is not much mist etc.

“Scenic beauty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Its best if you hire a jeep to reach this place. There are 2-3 routes that take you to this place. View to the spot and from the spot is beautiful. Very good place to trek.

“Panoramic View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Great panoramic views and treks. Involves a bit of off-roading to get there. There are locals with open-top jeeps that can drive you up to the starting point of the trek for a nominal fee (we paid Rs. 100 per head). This drive is approx 5km we were told, and went up a windy, kaccha road.
