Overview

This was once the summer retreat of Tipu Sultan. It’s a good place for hiking and birding. The hill also has temples dating back to the Chola period. It gets extremely crowded on weekends. The hills offer great views of the surroundings, though.

We actually visited the place at 6 am just to see the sunrise. Unfortunately due to heavily cloudy weather, it was more of a windy and foggy day. The early week of July certainly brought a different mood to the occasion. Random clicks, hot tea/coffee,...More

I went there on a Monday afternoon to stay until sunset and it was super safe. We left while it was raining but had no issues with the road conditions.

Just Before 6 AM. Reach there early at least 30 mins before sunrise, so that you can walk up to the sunrise point comfortably.
