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.

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.
