“Great views of Simla town”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Reaching the temple itself is an adventure with narrow, winding and extremely steep roads. The place is extremely peaceful and offers great views of the mountains and Simla town. Beware of the monkeys though...

“Amazing”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

The trek and the summit is amazing especially in the monsoon time, and the number of visitors are minimum. I could count only five, including the temple priests, when I went there.
The place was unreal, there was only us and the clouds, nothing else, made you believe in God. I would advise people to do the trek, don't go by car or bus, unless you have to, otherwise you will miss all the fun.
