About Mahakal Mandir
This popular and highly revered temple is set atop the summit of Darjeeling Observatory Hill. Mahakal Temple is only around 20-minutes away from the road. Even so, the spiral path may leave the trekkers exhausted, but the end result of the trek is usually quite rewarding for them. There are big signboards on the pathways that guide the travellers to reach the destination.
During your trek, you would also come across some beautiful cottages, splendid views of the mountain side, and vibrant meadows. If you are lucky, you might even be walking amongst the clouds.
The temple is great in every sense of the word - whether it is the natural beauty of the place, or the spiritual vibes and lovely atmosphere. However, there are a lot of monkeys on the way and they might try to snatch away your items. So, be careful of them. Rest, as they say, is a smooth walk.
