  • The snow covered path to the peak makes this place adventurous and beautiful at the same time. The precautions should not be overlooked during winters such as wearing trekking shoes. The views at each turn of the path are amazing. You can spend a whole day on this 1.5 km trek embracing the beauty of nature and making snowmen😉.
  • A short trek ... Not exactly trek but you can call it. Place is awesome and satdhara view is great from here. There is a temple at the peak of this mountain. But make sure you come back from the peak before sunset because it gets dark too early and it's hard.to find the correct road.
