  • Located at a hight of 7200 feet above sea level, this temple true to its name Tara Devi which means goddess of the stars gives you the feeling of driving up to the stars. The upwards climb is pretty arduous but once you reach the top, you have a sight to behold. It is absolutely brilliant looking and well maintained. Definitely worth checking out as the temple in itself is pretty unique.
  • Love this place, road is too stiff. For big vehicle it takes at least five minutes to cross one turning. No overtaking possible during your entire journey. Langar is available and its very good. Be careful with monkeys. It's 7000 feet above sea level.
  • The temple is very beautiful and the wooden architecture stands out. We had gone to see the view, but once we reached on top, the temple was too attractive to miss. It's not very crowded or commerical and is pleasant to walk around and spend some time there.

  • It’s approximately 4 km trek up to the temple. The view is fantasic and the temple is also very beautiful. The best part of the trek is lungar which we get in the temple 😋
