  • Lot of stones and huge rocks were found on the way while climbing up or getting down, rest all was fine. Forest Dept fees is 350rs/ person
  • Nature at its best. Lush green forest. Easily trek-able. The forest is full of leeches, especially if you are passing in the morning time. Leeches will be less visible while the sun is overhead. Recommended to wear flipflops, shorts and half sleeves shirt. Carry around half kg salt to sprinkle over leeches if they crawl over you. The forest guards will try to extort some money from you.
