- Summers are extremely hot here so make sure you check the weather before you plan a trip.- The food is generally spicy, be careful before requesting for extra spicy food. It would be best to ask them to serve moderate to medium spicy food..- Due to tourism, some resorts and hotels have come up in the vicinity, you can avail good food from here.

Most of the places to visit here are religious in nature.
