  • Liked this place a lot, very quiet and natural. Not affected by human activity. We sow every beautiful location from high mountain to the water falls, the most important thing that i sow it was not allowing the plastic material to inter in that place. Hope the keep like this and protect this place
  • Great park with amazing sights. Best enjoyed in the early hours from 6 AM onwards. Also note that if you're a foreigner you'll have to pay 5000 rupees for entrance unlike locals :)
