  • Oh lovely spot, highest in Dalhausi.. Some snow, definitely.... Not that difficult to reach too.. Get some eatables also.. When you go to Dalhausi... must make it a point to visit this natural beauty spot
  • Nice place, less crowded and very scenic. One can find a lot of snow for most part of the year. There's a trek of about 1.5 km that leads to a temple at the top. Nice location to take some awesome photos.
  • 3 4 kms tracking. What a view. Best place to visit. But don't even try to visit with aged people and children. quite risky place to visit but a worth view.
  • A good trek. It's around 1.5 km trek to peak where a Temple is situated. Awesome view, specially mountain range.
  • Highest peek location of Dalhousie you can found snow moreover the time except peak hot weather. A beautiful temple also there for worship. Pleasant weather to enjoy, need some efforts to reach out.
