    Good nature around but waste of time if no animals spotted

    Nothing much to do but just walk and look at the Deodar Trees around. Except for this no other exciting stuff gets your attention. Though eager to come across a reindeer, I saw none so for me it was a complete waste of time. But for nature lovers its a great place to reach and meditate at a corner in loneliness and serenity.
