    Nice scenic ground next to a small but excellent Army museum. Not many visitors but better than going to Kufri in my opinion.  more »

    Superb and a great Army museum. Excellently ​maintained. Very informative on the history n all aspects of the Indian army, since the colonial days.All sewa medals also displayed with detailed reasoning. Lots of weaponry n dresses are displayed of all ages. There's a golfcourse only for army personnel. Clean washrooms for visitors and also a good refreshments outlet with gr8 sitting, directly over viewing the golf course.Entry is free but timing is 9am to 5-6 pm in evening for visitors.

    I don't play golf so I'm not going to review that way. For me, view of the valley and hills is awesome, a small coffee shop is nearby. So, I relaxed there while enjoying my coffee.
