We couldn't find anything to adore. Its just a high slope with dried up fields. At top view of surrounding hills is OK but its completely dry land and we don't felt anything special.

The Shooting Point is just on the side along a scenic road. It's a cool spot for a break, and the lake looks beautiful, despite the garbage on the margins... Along this road there are also quite a few viewpoints, totally worth it. I'd advise taking your time along the road... really nice mountain views and lakes.

Went here to view the sunset. The spot itself isn't much more than a hill to walk up and the view is nice. The true magic was just as the sun set over the hills in the distance.

Long grass land with nice slops ending towards a lake. Good photos can be clicked. Nice place to relax with the wind coming from all over. But if tight with schedule can be skipped. It is also know as Filmi Chakkar, as few Bollywood movies has been shot here.

We visited this place on our way to Pykara lake. Nothing much to explore just a small walk to explore the surrounding and for few clicks.
