Not being so athletic in normal life ..feels like an achievment to have reached the top and the feeling can't be compared to anything. The view, the trek, the mountain water in a way just makes it a perfect place to visit in the region.

Hi Siva, Chembra Peak is opened through out the year starting morning 7 till 2 afternoon. As you have to climb really quite steep height so avoid going there in rainy season. Also take plenty of water with you.
