  • It is the best trek among all the treks to the peak tower. It is full of greenery and will give you a essence of jungle trail. The city is also visible through the jungle which makes it look more beautiful. During hot days you can prefer the green trail as the way to the peak is covered by the trees but avoid it during the rainy days as it becomes slippery. Yes you need to have good energy level in order to walk a lot. Takes around 2 hrs of walking.
  • An interesting way to get to see the city without doing the crazy queues for the tram. I walked up and took the bus down. Had fun getting 'lost' trying to find the trail.
