    Explore the panoramic views of the mighty peaks and spot the opir panjal, dhaludar ranges from the summit point. One can also explore the dense vegetation of alpine trees, oak and green meadows. Long two weeks trekking is for people with some know how of trekking. Beginners need more trekking guidance before embarking on the trek.

    There are many complex points where hiking is not easy. Your stamina plays a crucial role in trekking on such stiff trails. But the good thing is that beautiful and panoramic views will keep you going. The grounds are flat at intermediate points so fixing tents won't be an issue.
