The heart shaped lake at the top is a must visit. trekking will take time & tiresome also. Make sure you pack enough water & snacks.

The view from the top was fantastic. We never wanted to go down again. It was totally worth the big long climb.

This activity is among the top activites but would require almost your full day. Also, ensure that you have the stamina to walk for 4 - 5 hours. At allow you to trek only till a point but yes you will find heart shaped lake enroute. Avoid going during the summer.

Moderate level trekking. Best time is October to december. If you are planning in any of other months then you can just enjoy the trek but the real beauty of this is in month of oct to dec.

It was a wonderful experience. Trekking was the best part of it.The trip will be best enjoyed with friends. Physically weak people should avoid it. Remember to carry water bottles.ONLY LIGHT WEIGHT BAGGAGE SHOULD BE CARRIED.Plan the trip at early morning.

After being told we could climb Chembra Peak e arrived at the ticket office to be told the summit was closed due to nesting birds. We were told we could take a shorter hike to the lake for the same admission of 1500 rs. For up to 5 people with a guide. We walked for an hour before reaching the... More
