Beautiful rock formation. But the view point is not enough to my expectations. A Short visit, nothing else. An approach bridge, some kind of an adventure arrangements may attract more.

Such an amazing nature's creation, thick fogs hitting over the rocks and you will have to eait for your luck to turn to see this rocks from far end. Once you get a chance to see them you will be mesmerized by the beauty of the nature.

When the midst clears, be ready to see two beautiful, gigantic pillars of trees standing proud and elegant. We were lucky to see it from our vehicle as we couldn't get down as kids were sleeping. If you can walk inside, nothing like it.

This is a view point that offers a magnificent view of the misty hills. There are a pair of giant pillar shaped rocks which leads to the name of the view point. Worth watching.

The scene is almost similar to one of the windows desktop pictures. Lot of tourists but nothing too good except chance of one or two pictures.

Though it is a good place to visit but I wish if we can go till the top of the rocks. Fun of visiting this place can be spoiled if it is not sunny, the misty atmosphere will not show you anything. So please plan accordingly.
