"Nothing short of fantastic. The hilltop location was spectacular,the place is intensely spiritual. Plenty to see, do and reflect upon!"

"The old ruins & houses made of stones. The Buddha statue is situated little bit higher than other places. It makes difficult to walk /climb this place due to high altitude & low oxygen. People get tired very early as they are not used to these regions. If you are lucky you may spot the Indian Air Force Cargo Plane as the base station is just near by."
