Tips

1. The Camel's Back Road is also open to vehicles and it gets quite busy at around 10:00 AM and around 5:00 PM. Be sure to be out of the vehicles' way when you walk here, especially at the bends.
2. There are no stalls or eateries along the entire road. So, carry a few snacks with you, but make sure you don't litter. You may find one or two stalls if you stray from the path where you can get a refreshing cup of tea and a plate of some delicious hill station Maggi.
3. If you don't want to walk the entire 3 km stretch, take an exit from the Picture Palace and you will directly reach the Mall Road.
4. For those who cannot or do not wish to walk on this road, there are haath-rickshaws available here. These are manually driven rickshaws with an open top which will allow you to fully enjoy the beauty of the attraction.
5. Be sure to buy a few postcards from a nearby shop to remind you of your time at Camel's Back Road!
