pros---

extremely windy on it's various viewing points like lakeview point , townview point , sunrise point , sunset point , echo point etc . you literally don't feel it's summer , so cool it is because of the wind . never saw wind blowing at such high speed in other hill stations like mahabelashwar , munnar etc .

reportedly becomes more beautiful in rainy season , with dense fog descending and lush greenery all around . so dense is the fog that you have to drive at only 10 km per hour during rains . but unlike other hill stations there is no ghat to drive there , so it does not become inaccessible in rains like mahabaleshwar or munnar .

cons---

no alcohol because of prohibition in gujarat .
though restaurants serve good food , non veg restaurants are very few because the mainly gujarati crowd there is mostly vegetarian .

no local transport like taxis , rickshaws at all . so you compulsorily have to bring your own car .
