  • Reaching this place is kinda difficult as Google Maps for some reason will take you the wrong way, but once you reach the top you can see some breathtaking views of the Himalayan range from here.  more »

  • It's a good place to stay. Nice location, also has geat views at some points. I liked the food and their staff is also cooperative. I can consider it a good hang out place during summer vacations. Nice view and fresh pure air for the one who love mountains.
  • The Snow View Point, they say, enables the tourists to view snow at distant mountain peaks. But, we saw, that once you are at the top, there's a circular big market place with lots of shops and eating joints. The natural scenic beauty is hardly enjoyable.
  • A picnic spot and a place of tourist destination. From here you may have a nice view of Himalayan Mountains on any clear sky day. Powerful binocular is installed there to have better view of Himalayan Mountains and other places to be seen through binoculars. Rs.10/- is charged for a one minute view through binoculars.
  • Good, convenient, budget friendly, off beat location for nature lovers, you got a little trouble while visiting mall road. Only pro drivers should take risk to drive till hotel. All over nice room nice food and location.
  • If weather is clean you can have a good view of himalyan mountain range.. Apart of that nothing much, cable car, adventure park, one small temple that's it.. There used to be a camp site "jungle camp" which is not operational as of now.. This place lacks some good attraction for visitors...
