  • Magnificent place to be. There are different trails and each of them gives you a never ending feel of pure nature beauty, I spent half of the day on the longest one and it’s definitely worth it.
  • Awesome place. Must visit. Visiting in off season and after 2 pm is recommended for lesser crowd. In morning too many visitors and will not get enough time to watch the beauty.
