Good if visited anytime other than winter

We went in winter and the place was completely covered by fog. When we looked at the pictures, they were surprising. Unfortunately, we could not get to see much cos of the fog.

One more tourist place . Good for the first time to a hill station. This is like viewing the other side of the mountain from this side. Usual touristic place. If you have a weekday in kodai ,with not the usual crowd, all these views can be done in a max to max of 2 hrs.

On our way to Guna caves, we stopped here to enjoy the view. It is just like a beautiful scenery.There is also a flower garden right next to it.
