A track runs up to Sunrise Point, and then the same road twirls up to the Echo Point. You find a natural amphitheatre in the mountain-face, where you can call to your echo, past a stone altar with three human figures.

Sunset point, also known as Gandhi Shikhar (meaning peak), offers a breathtaking view of Saputara and is at a walkable distance from the heart of the town.

At the Honey Bee Center you will learn how bees make honey and even purchase pure honey to take home.
