First, the ancient historical ruins including the largest brick creation in the world that dates back 2000 years.There is a hilly area which is 4000 feet above sea level covered with greenery tea plantations, stunning waterfalls and panoramic views.Lastly, the magnificent coastal area with its eye-catching movements of whales and dolphins in the deep sea.
