  • An amazing trekking location. One of the tallest peak. Has great view. The trekking in parts are difficult. Please carry enough water, fruit, biscuits with you. Please wear loose and comfortable dress. Please use trekking shoes or good shoes. Restrooms available but it is not well maintained. Parking space available and the changes are reasonable.
  • Excellent place for trekking but it may be difficult for few people. Please be prepared before trekking, carry nesassary items which may be required you while trekking. It will provide excellent experience of trekking. All the very best.
