  • Best scenery from the top. Nice trekking spot. Food is not available at top, you have to order it from hotels near starting point and they will carry the food at top if requested(I don't know detailed info about food). I took around 2:00-2:30hrs for us to trek. Must visit place.
  • The trek here is of easy to moderate level. You just have to walk a lot. The whole experience is so soothing at the end of the trek when you see the scene from the top. Recommend to start climbing early so the heat of the sun doesn't drain your energy.
