    Beautiful place amidst forest. Offers excellent views of the snow peaks and Pemyangtse Monastery. Need to walk (15-20 mins) to reach the top.

    This is an awesome location, a trek for kilometer & half, you will enjoy the walk through the dense forest, and once you finally reach, you will be amazed. Not much of ancient architecture to see, most of it is destroyed, but it is well maintained and very few tourist visit the place, makes it quite and enjoyable.
