  • Perfect place to see sea of clouds and sunset. The path with story telling of 18levels of hell was interesting. There is a tortoise 🐢 pool with man made waterfalls located at level 7C . The vegetarian restaurant here serves pretty delicious meal but its a bit pricey. There is a Starbucks here as well where you can enjoy some coffee with a huge Buddha as a backdrop. It's a very peaceful and relaxing place. And many nice spot for stunning photo.
  • Can relax here before going up to genting,drop free by cable car
