Fantastic and breathtaking natural work of art however you may face annoying agents who would push tour packages etc on you and wouldn’t go away unless you can really convey the message strongly. Place is a bit more commercial than it needs to be. Rest...More

The entrance fee is so high and there is really nothing to see at the Elephant Trunk Hill. Do not waste your time and money here. Go to the Twin Pagodas instead but at night.

Just a hole in a rock in a park that costs to gain entry. When we were there it was very crowded. Still bewildered about what the excitement was all about. Seriously a non event.
