While coming down you could take a different route, but you will end up on the other side of the mountain. We recommend to carry a torch, as it does get dark after the sunset, which reduces the visibility of the steps. We ended the trek with sweet and replenishing coconut water at the base.

4. Relaxing At Sanapur Lake
As we could not bear the heat during the day, we went out to the lake at night, around 9pm. It was blissful, looking at the shimmering water in the moonlight, listening to the wind whistling through the rocks. We simply sat there looking at the clouds passing by, hiding the moon from time to time.
Note: It is pretty dark around the lake, as there are no street lights, so do carry a torch.
