Not so steep if your are healthy.. just few steps that can be climbed in 5-10 mins if you are fit enough. But once when you are close to the top and start seeing the glimpse of the lakes from there, everything else doesn't matter....More

Serene small temple on top, with a great 360-view of Srinagar all around. Security is high, no electronic devices are allowed. Climbing the 250-odd steps can be tiring for inactive and older people.
