I have visited twice. But could not get the service. They close it soon. Availability is poor. Not sure of any partiality or not. They charge you double. In website it’s 450/- rate and actually they charge you 900/- for 30mins.

Walk up instead of the waiting for the vehicle. Nothing much on top of the am - just a good walk before sunset.
