An absolute and stunning location near vagamon. The formation of rocks are just awesome. Almost on the top you can park your vehicle. From there you can either go on trekking or go for a Jeep safari. Preferred timing Ear ly morning or evening.

This place offer amazing views from up top. Adventurous drive to get to the location. You can ride your private vehicle up to two kms away from the view point. From there, you have to take a government approved transportation. Great place to visit.
