One who can walk and climb stairs at ease will enjoy this place, the locality at the higher ground in the mountains will bring you to a magnificent view around it.

Kamru fort is accessed by a number of steps leading up the hill - around a 20-minutes walk. The temple here is very pretty, with a beautiful wooden building and rose bushes.

This fort is above the Monastery and quite old. Ma Kamakshya devi is inside the temple and it is near the fort. People are generally not allowed to enter inside for its security.

Vehicles are permitted only up to certain point. Need to walk your way ahead. Good Fort from outside but entry is prohibited inside the fort. Should be open for tourist.
