We visited this peak in Nov 2014. The roads are narrow in the ghats but the view is awesome. After parking at the base of the mountain,we had to climb apprx 450+ steps to reach the top. If you can, you have to reach the top because the view from here is mesmerizing. We reached the top at around 11:00 am. It was very cold and a very strong breeze blowing, hence do carry sweaters, ear plugs if necessary. This is a must visit place in Chikmagalur, you just cant miss it. We were also lucky to see a Shooting of a Kannada film - Buguri and met Actor Ganesh as well.

Exciting drive on the ghat sections . All the persons in the car were on edge of seat . The roads are narrow but the view is just unbeatable . There were small streams flowing and the water was cold even during afternoon (this was in november). After parking at the mountain ,we had to climb the few steps to reach the top. Awesome view on the top . You will not forget the ride and the view from here

Could not reach the peak due to very poor weather and poor visibility due to fogs.

However, the route was beautiful. If you are new driver, be very careful on the last few kms. You better leave your vehicle in some kind of base camp some 5 km below. You can take a jeep taxi ride to the peak. Our vehicle got spoiled try to reach the peak with the local driver. The road from base to the peak is in very very bad condition with huge pot holes

Awesome but roads leading to base are not maintained well. Other than that the views from this place are breath-taking. Go either to Sunset or Sunrise or both:)
