  • Trek lover... Shiv shamboo devotees... wonderful location... Love the place and its beauty
  • A beautiful divine place with ultimate traveling location, full of tourists facilities and an awesome place for trekking too.
  • 1. Nice place for people who love, trekking, adventure, scenery, Shiv Mandir, landscape. 2. Honeymoon couple can also enjoy if they spend their stamina on steep trekking instead of love making ;), but they do find aloof area too. 3. People will love Chandrashilla peak(go in summer) offcourse if they make to the top for 360 degree view at sunrise in right time.
  • A great , lovely as well as holy place.Enroute you have enchanting views of green meadows, valleys or reddish rhododendrons or glistening white ice caps.Easy ascending for a few hours.Eateries easy available enroute for summer months.
  • Very good place its a 3rd kedar temple but not for peace loving guys its a crowded place like college people mostly around here & making too much noise .. but chandrashila is good place..
