The view is great, as if the hill is covered with a carpet of green grass!! You could spot a bunch of monkeys around!

Nice point to see where stone is shaped like elephants head. It is also called as Needlehole point adjacent to Kate's point. View from top is very beautiful and also good to shoot panoramic shots.. Nice place to visit with family for 1-2 hrs.

Surprisingly I couldnt see the elephant head from the point that easily, but the view of point itself from adjacent lodwick point is worth visiting for. You can feel the 360 degree view of the valley from this point, which is exception to experience..
