The visit to the holy temple can be done by trekking or by rope way. The place is full of crowd and has system to manage crowd. However the place needs improvement in cleanliness.

You can walk upto the temple but we took the ropeway. Long queue for the ropeway (cable car) to the Chandi Devi Temple, plant your timings accordingly. Temple located... More
