  • The trip to go up is amazing and worth doing it. However dont do the mistake and buy a ticket to enter what they call "lipton seat". There is nothing special there while someone will try to grab...

  • Wonderful spot, great drive up. Unfortunately, the mist didn't clear on the day we visited so we couldn't capture the best views.

  • Great panoramic view from the top. Most of the time view was covered with mist.It will take 1 hour drive from haputale town. Never regret it was a such a beautiful place. Roads were very narrow. If you are confident on your driving it’s matter of enjoying. On top you get small shop you can have poll rotti, Samosa etc with tea or coffee. Food was taste good and with reasonable price . Over all it’s great memorable journey specially with family bunch
  • Beautiful view point. Most of the time the view was covered with the mist. Road is very narrow. In weekends this place is crowded. There is small shop on the top. So you can have rotti and hot plain tea. Washrooms available
