Wedding Cake Rock

Hike to the Wedding Cake Rock

One of the most beautiful rocks I have ever seen in my life is the Wedding cake rock. Why is it called the Wedding cake rock? Well the answer is simple – the rock formations look like the wedding cake layered up.


I had been planning a hike to this walk for close to 2 years. And then it happened – one fine day. A hike to the Wedding cake rock and I took an iconic picture of sitting at the edge. NOTE: Now there is a fence to restrict hikers/tourists to walk on the rock as it has proved to be dangerous.
