"Beautiful temple in the midst of valleys"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Dec 21, 2015
A beautiful temple in the leap of Himalayan, around it is small mountain peaks covered with a little snow if you visit in July-August which is the best time to get their as after that rainy season create a lot of troubles. Visit the place in the evening as their is Aarti every evening in the temple and also the sunset looks charismatic between the reflections of snow and mountains. Don't carry heavy backpacks, and if you have any breathing problems carry oxygen which is easily available their. At nights keep windows of your rooms open as closed room must suffocate you and you can have problem like vomiting and etc. Drink only packed drinking water and don't forget to carry a walking stick it will be very useful for all age groups. Don't try any shortcut always be on the proper road as you could slip if chosen shortcut's.

It is an amazing experience to soak in the beauty, serenity & calmness of the trekking journey leading to the destination. The top of the hills relieve all the stress and takes one to a world of their own. An exciting 3-4 days trip which will leave you wanting for more and surely your heart will skip a beat if you have to go back to a metro city! The weather is amazing!
