“Serene”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

I read reviews complaining about the state of the roads. I went there in Feb 2014, and the roads were good enough, I have seen worse in the north. The steepness of the roads made the trip fun as while coming back we were allowed to stand at the back side of the jeep.
As for the place, it was beautiful, I would highly recommend people to go there in the morning for the sunrise. The view is brilliant, and the treks are also nice.
All in all a must see when in Madikeri.

“Power of 4 wheel drive.”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

At crossing of Abbi Falls we have to change vehicle. It is 2.1/2 hour drive to the spot. This place doesn't have habitat. Roads are very rough very stiff . This place got famous after shooting of one south cinema.

“Dusty paradise!”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Awesome place and a delight for your cameras. But be ready for a bumpy and a dusty ride. Be prepared to carry a couple of napkins to clean yourself by the time you get there. But once you are there, its like a paradise. Full view on top of a mountain is a delight. Awesome point.

“Somewhat OK”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Worst roads, you would definitely want to return half way instead of reaching the top. Better to go to this place in the early morning as it will be little hot in the afternoon time.
