Like other places it also offers good view of nainital from the top. It takes approximately one hour to reach the top. It is advisable to carry some food items along with you as everything is costly on the top.

A flat area of land on the top of hill. Bcoz of union of horse pullers, they have made the place inaccessible on foot. And not worth spending 800 rs for horse to reach this place.

There is nothing at the top. No views of himalayas, snow peaks or clear view of nainital city. Ticket of ropeway is 230 for an adult, way expensive as there is nothing much at the top.

This is popular among the locals for picnics. It is surrounded by trees & we can enjoy a day out with family & friends.
