  • Ruins of a fort. 2-3km long walk is required to reach the fort. Hence it would not suit for people who cant walk much. Fort is decent and looks like ruins of a big house. Stories flow around that its built for 1st wife of Sikkim King
  • Lovely, 800 m walk approx before you reach at the top. Please don't panic while you walk up the inclined plane, you shall reach easily with 2 stops
