  • I visited on a weekday. It was not at all crowded. Peaceful place. Don't bother the monkeys. Please don't litter🙏 and help the authorities keep it clean. Drive slow and carefully we can see wild animals crossing the road. Good parking space.
  • Great place, great views. Need to walk 200 easy steps to reach to the point from car park. Car parking on road, difficult to find in peak hours. Can get small snack items like Maggi, nuts, sweet corn, ice candy etc in small stalls 10-12 stalls. Ample Place to sit and have packed lunch if you carrying, a group of 60-70 can get accommodated.
