From the first tonk, we went to the other temple, which is a bit off the main route, about 1200 steps down. From there you can... More

Takes about 5-6 hours to climb (may be less if you start earlier), and about 2-3 hours to get down. Make sure you have a lot of fluids along the way. There are shops every 300m or so, so you can keep buying drinks or water.

Started the climb at 0530 hrs & was at the peak by 0830 hrs, with a few breaks en route to capture the awesome scene on the... More

An amazing trek for a family, if you go for a parikrama. For all-times you can climb by stairs. Amazing feeling when you are above the clouds, especially if the clouds are filled with water, you will feel heavenly abode. There are some jain temples on the way too. Don't keep another place to visit after this as you will... More
