The Right destination for doing Barbeque defying the winter chillness ...Should do driving with utmost care as unexpected curves and twists are on the way to Jais.. Reaching Jais you can experience the Longest Zip line....

Highest mountain, longest zip line, high speed flying. How more excitement can you handle?. Our group experienced this with rave reviews, the ride is over too quick for some others not so sure. If you have the opportunity do it.

Yes no problem. A three month old won’t be running around. So perfectly safe while you take in the stunning views. Just take care driving up and down the road. Although good tarmac surface, it is steep. Low gear up and down... More
