This place is very near to the base of the tadiandamol hill. If u are planning a trek to tadiandamol peak, you can visit this place on the way. Takes hardly 10-15 mins. Dont miss out the secret room in the first floor.

The journey to this place is irksome as you don't have proper directions to reach here and if you don't know the local language it is even more trouble. Also the approach road to the palace is very bad. This place is totally neglected and...More
