Pillar Rocks are visited by tourists and travellers to see the stunning beauty of nature as the rocks stand tall amidst fog and mist. It is better to travel here in summer season to have a clear view of the rock formations.

These unique rocks are around 400m tall, and you can see Devil's Kitchen from a distance, which is located between two of these pillars. The place is often frequented by shutter bugs and nature lovers alike. To view the tall pillar-like rock structures that stand with no support is truly a wonderful experience.
