The Zero Point is nothing great, the drive is really steep and the road is bad plus there is nothing much to explore coz once u enter the wild sanctuary it’s pure nature everywhere so there is no point driving up that far.

Zero Point is about 2 km walk from KMVN Tourist Rest House. No vehicle is allowed on this route. The walk itself is wonderful. You can see various bird during the walk. A structure has been construed to get good views of the mountains.
