This location is a paradise for mountain lovers. There are certain location and cottages where you can have a 180 deg view of mountains. Also , summer is the time of flower blooms here. A beautiful monastery is nearby.

No infrastructure. Hotels are very ordinary, roads are pathetic, food is poor and the car association / syndicate makes you pay through your nose. Kachenjugha is rarely visible from this place. There is very little reason to visit this place.
