You can visit Tiger point on the way, it has a beautiful water fall, water flowing spot with big rocks and huge hills. There you can have snacks and tea as a refreshment and for enjoying the view. The sad part is there are no tigers left there only the lucky ones can see if the tiger comes out to have water otherwise monkeys are the kings of that tiger point. People offer them whatever they eat by sharing the food, bhuttas (Corns), Mathis, Namkeens, Buiscuits etc. You can experience trekking, hiking and camping activities.

Farming is the main source of earning for the people living there. And majorly grown crop is TAU (An international Crop) & SARSON (Mustard) . Beauty of farms while sunrise and sunset is so amazing and the golden silhouette over the crops looks so sparkling and shining that will leave a sparkle in your eyes. Tau has been a fruitful and life changing thing for farmers, even the farmers are increasing the price per year as its demand is increasing day by day. See the beauty of TAU below :
