View is excellent. Had to walk a lot to reach the mountain top but was worth the effort. There is a temple also at the top of the hill.

This is a place where "dayans" (witches) used to roam as per the folklore...:) This is such a beautiful place that once you reach there and start 2 km uphill trek you simply get mesmerized with the beauty of the place.
