Scenic View at the Top of the Peak

The place offers the most scenic view from the topβ€”a panoramic view of the mountain ranges. It is your little piece of paradise. It offers someone a cold, chilly experience as the temperature drops during afternoon until night. It is also the best place to witness the sunset and the sunrise.

Best for Overnight Camping

To those who want to enjoy the place, they can set-up their camping tent. It is best to go there when the weather is fine and is not raining so they can enjoy and chill under a starry night.
