nice trek.. not a tough one.. even kids can do the trek. The trek is through dense forest and the view from the top is very beautiful.

The Zero Point is nothing great, the drive is really steep and the road is bad plus there is nothing much to explore coz once u enter the wild sanctuary it’s pure nature everywhere so there is no point driving up that far.

Zero Point is about 2 km walk from KMVN Tourist Rest House. No vehicle is allowed on this route. The walk itself is wonderful. You can see various bird during the walk. A structure has been construed to get good views of the mountains.
