"You must visit this place in monsoon. Remember, to reach there max by 6pm otherwise it gets too tough to drive & as it's hilly road it gets too risky in night. Staying there in night can be risky. Plus, they might also charge very high for room as its season time in monsoon. Even trekking is available here."

"I have 1st visited this place in rainy season and I still remember the scenic view of the temple after 2 years.. the temple was between clouds and the floor was filled with rain water ... ancient look of the temple is a big attraction there .. no colors or decorations to the temple shows the simplicity of it.. no words about shiv bagawan.. one should experience it..
