The entire place looks out of the world.It was monsoon when I visited.The place was full of green.Though the stairs are a bit treacherous for elderly and kids, still its worth a visit if your health permits.

3000 stairs down and then up again. Very difficult unless you are ready for the effort. Try the single bridge for half the work.
