From the vantage point, you can have a look at grasslands, evergreen, deciduous and riverine forests and the expanses of irrigated arid land across the border where the nectar from Periyar provides the breath of life. The view of the tribal villages below, Cumbam valley, Mangaladevi, Kumarikulam and other escarpments, a glimpse of the Palni hills beyond the borders of Tamil Nadu are all a sight to behold in true "high definition."
