  • Stone carvings made by neolitihic man about 8000 years ago were a definite no-miss for me. Various seemingly complicated etchings made on the rock greet the visitor once he or she climbs up the walk.....  more »

  • It was an adventurous journey with good landscape views and the product sell in the shops are good. Morning time is so perfect for the journey with a good climate. just enjoy your walking never feel bored. u will surely get exhausted by the way u reach the top.
  • The fun starts from the trek! It lasts for about a kilometre, make sure you wear the right shoes. The whole path is covered with trees and shops and cute monkeys. After a while you start climbing through these huge rocks, the experience is splendid. Finally, when you reach atop, you enter a huge cave with carvings dating back to 6000 BC. The view also is pretty amazing from there. The journey down is pretty easy, try to quench your thirst with a fresh tender coconut!
