  • When I climbed up to the peak of this hill from the point the vehicles were not allowed to go any further, there was nobody at the top other than my friends and me. We sat there for an hour in silence...  more »

  • Awesome place.. If someone wants to go on short trek like 3-4 km this is best place. Not quite tough and not too easy... Very nice exp. Use plastic boots for better grip..
  • 2km trail from road. Great location of temple. Serene. Must visit if you don't mind little bit of hike.
  • You Need excellent health to walk one km straight peak .good place to hang around. You can see peer Pranjal range from here . Situated above local flower valley.you will find white small flower all over the way to dainkund. It's a lovely view.
  • These is one of the highest located tourist places in Chamba. I went there during rainy season so it was foggy. But the fog had cleared for sometime in between and the view was magnificent. You really feel like you are on the top of the world. I also visited Pohlani Mata temple which i would advise to everyone even if they are not religious, because its a nice place to even just roam around. If you are planning to go there plan it on a clear day, your experience will be awesome
  • It's a beautiful trek of around 2 kilometers of easy difficulty level. The trek looks even more beautiful during sunset. At the top, there is a temple and a small shop, but nothing in between. The place often catches network of J&K mobile networks.
