There are two paths to go up - one is through stairs and other is through forest and hills. Stair climbing path is obviously exhausting as it has around 600-700 stairs. Since, there are no shops or stalls on the way, one should definitely carry a bottle to hydrate self. The top hill view is serene and peaceful, a treat for all the trekking and adventure lover. At the top hill, at approximately 2 km away, a cave is located which contains magical water on which sun rays don't fall in-spite of direct contact. Beware of monkeys, keep all the items safe. Certainly a must place to visit.
