Great spot to spend 3-4 hours, specially in evening or when weather is good. There is natural beauty of rocks and ravines and waterfall.

Location is exactly where Google Maps tells you it will be. Entry fee is 105 rupee per adult, 40 per child, kids below 10 years free, and 345 for car.

Ticket is bit on high side gives absolutely lack of any amenities or tourist development. There is no drinking water or bathroom. Nothing to eat. Lots of monkeys so you better avoid taking any eatables.

Waterfall downstairs is great to spend an hour in but there are no changing facilities. Plan to carry extra pair of clothes though to enjoy the bath. Rest is just walking, sitting, and clicking pictures.

And yes, road off National Highway is pathetic to say the least.

It's bit sad because this could have been so much better. Ravine view restaurant, snacks and food counter, changing facilities, bathing clothes rental, rope way across ravine, boat ride, better road and parking, and so much more can be done to develop this as great tourist attraction.

Location: This place is near to Kota but not in the actual city. Situated at a distance of approximately 15 km from it. You can travel by car or hire a taxi to visit it.

Caution and advise:
1) Once the road branches off from the National Highway, it is in terrible condition.
2) The car goes up to a certain point. After it, the viewpoints and temple are at some altitude, so elderly people having any major problem in legs should think before going.
3) Mobile signals are not there.
4) Water bottle mandatory to be carried. After climbing an ascending path for getting mesmerizing views and a descending path to visit the temple, you will be definitely thirsty.
5) No near by shops, washrooms etc.

If the above things are taken care then this place is TRULY AWESOME to visit.

Key Points:
-Extra discounts on tickets with valid students ID. Please carry the physical ID proof.
-Amazing view of Chambal river with birds flying over it. Can relax in lot of PEACE.
-Easily shoot good PICTURES with nature as many beautiful spots available.
-Good place for group of young people, family or couples.
-2 to 3 hours can be easily spent here.
-Perfect picnic spot. Carry food, snacks etc.
-Monkeys are there all around. But no need to worry as they don't snatch anything.
-Reach the Lord Shiva Temple shrine by descending a few steps.
-Don't miss to see the parrots & peacocks near the temple.

OVERALL EXPERIENCE:

I went to this lovely place with my cousins in march end when the summer started but still the views were mesmerizing. Don't know how much more beautiful it would be in monsoon with lush greenery that time:-)

In Kota you can't expect a wonderful place like this. Its simply the BEST Sightseeing place over there!!

Did I like this place ? Hell yes, this is one of the best memories I have. What a place, what a view ... and lots of Monkeys around :)

Just to remember that you try to reach before 5 pm to get entry otherwise doors will be closed. You need to enter this place by 4 pm (winter season) ..and come out by 6

its about 5 km inside from the main excellent highway (Kota to Chittorgarh) , but maintained by the forest department (with their own rules and regulations to follow).

But what a view, what a place it is.

This place can't be described in words. You can't feel the enigma of this place until you yourself have been there. Stunning view of Chambal Valley taking U-turn. Only drawback is heavy charges to enter this place. 3adults with car will coat you more than 500₹ which is far much if compared to amenities.

Great larger than life view, something than normal cameras can’t capture. Beautiful to look at Chambal river taking a ‘U’ turn literally. So if you are visiting Kota or bundi this is a must visit view point. There is a nice old temple too jst a few steps down the rocks. Worth the effort.
A point where you can sit for hours glacing at the marvel of nature and wonder how small we are.

We are travelling central India and were moving from Bundi to Jhalawar and our guide recommended this place. Genuinely awesome but read for tips to make most of

It appears not cheap to enter. Tourist price of 550rp each. The place is difficult to find and then the drive (about 1/3 mile) up to viewing point is awful.

Once parked right in front of you there is fencing which partially obstructs the view but if looking out across head down to the bottom right and the fencing ends. The views are breath taking.

Also if you continue down to the right there are steps leading down to a temple carved in the cliff face below where you were standing. Steep steps but well maintained and beautiful to visit, there was a priest there too.

All in all after the price, drive down and awful fence I was a bit dubious but in the end if near the area this is 100% a must see. Jaw dropping amazing views.
