"Perfect view from top, in background u can view whole range of Himalayas and endless horizon in the front. It is situated at more than 10k fts. Trekking is about 2km to the top, easy trek, and horses are available for aged people. Legend says head of goddess fell here , as is one of the 51 parts of her body. "

"The trek to temple is a bit difficult as it is steep, horse ride is available but the charge a lot. but once you reach the top the view is really mesmerizing and is really worth it. The weather up there is cold. the temple is really beautiful. Visited January 2016 Highly recommended, A must Visit"
