You need to take permission from forest dept to take your own vehicle.We couldn't get it and used their vehicle. Excellent place. Unfortunately, there is a huge traffic these days, especially on weekends. It took around 3Hrs to cover 20 km for us.

You feel like you are in Switzerland.. only place where after coming you feel like you've justified your entire trip by coming here. Although it was tough to get the gate pass before entering into berigam lake. Nice place.. must visit.
