We heard of this place and was the top destination among our trip. While going, it was easy through the stairs but while returning it was very painful. Only physically fit and athletes should go.

it is a full day excursion. coz while it will takes 7-8 hrs (to n fro) you will have little or no energy to do anything else. yes there are little home stays around n you can take a guide and camp on the wilderness too.
