  • It is very scenic. Play of clouds in lush green downhills is pleasing. I saw it July time.. Ideal time to visit I think is immediately after rainy season ends...so that you will have nice panorama without obstruction of much clouds. Wbite1, yellow flowers all around... Roads are comparatively well paved..
  • Duankund peak of one of the amazing place. It was like 1 hour trek to reach the temple and peak. Trail was well maintained and we had a nice sheet of white flowers along with the trail. Trek was kind of easy to moderate however it might be difficult for old people. The view along with trail was amazing, spectacular. Only sad part of this trail was litters. They are all around the trek despite having several dust bins along with path. We tried to collect as much as litter as we could. Sacrifice is banned in temple premise but there was skin and fur of an animal on the alter.
  • Only if there was less sun. A great hike. Great atmosphere. Great people. One can further trek after the temple. Pleasant views.
  • The trek over here is amazing, you won't feel exhausted. The views that you get here is a delight for your eyes. The trek till the temple is a wonderful experience, try to go in the morning so that you won't experience the heat during the afternoon, even the evening is nice.
  • Must visit place, you will not regret... People give-up to climb first peak... There is side walk to avoid the peak... the temple is on another peak... Valley is full of flowers....don’t give up it is hardly 1.5km
