Breathtaking view. Jeep would cost Rs. 1800/- which can accommodate 5-7 people. Ride from start point is about 22 kms and on very bad roads. It absolutely rough.

Among all the attractions in Coorg, I will certainly rate this as the best. The 30 min Jeep ride was fun and the view from the view point was breathtaking. The jeep ride costed as around Rs.1500 without any bargaining.
