This is a great place to visit on a clear day with stunning views. The journey up is best by tuc-tuc as the road is very narrow - it's a great scenic journey up and well worth the visit. more »
Its an adventure to go to the top since the road is so narrow. Tea plantations on both sides of the road is so beautiful. You can see a vast area at the top luckily if you avoid mist. Wont see anything with the mist. Do try a cup of tea and pol roti from the restaurant at the top.
Beautiful view from Lipton's seat as well as the viewing tower. Best visited in the morning. We were there by 7a.m. Only a couple of visitors were there so not crowded. Kids loved the place. Stayed about an hour here while enjoying the view and a leisurely breakfast at the small shop. We fed a friendly dog who kept the monkeys at bay. Car park enough for 5-6 cars.
