no ropeway facility, for foods and refreshment you have options available on the way, i,e from downstairs to temple . There are many small shops and eating joints available , where you can take food and some rest
How much amount for dwelling & eating..we are going to stay 1 night & 1 day.. Any 2 wheeler parking facility? Any affordable boarding lodging? My estimate budget is around 3000 for 2 persons including dwelling n eating
