Tiffin Top is a hilltop at a height of 2292 m and is around 6 km away from Mallital. Popularly known as Dorothy's Seat, this spot is dedicated to an English artist called Dorothy Kellet. I loved this place a lot.

Been there by recommendation of one of the local guy, and it was worth visiting. You can reach there either by horse ride or through a 1.5 km walk trail. Place is surrounded by oak trees and you can also get some good maggie from those small canteen.

Once you are at the top, all the effort to reach the top would seem worth it ! The skyline is amazing, particularly on a clear sky/ blue sky day. The view of the valley is breathtaking! It takes about 2 hours to go up and come down, on horse. Trekking may take bit longer, it's about 3 + km... More

There are two ways of getting there. 1. Horse riding 2. Trekking. Trekking is tough as the road is very dirty and slippery. Horse riding is easier.

The views are magnificent. The horse ride is good. If you are on more than one horse, they take a guide fee of Rs. 60 per horse. But after a few metres, one of the guides will return and there will only be one guide for two horses. It costs 760 per horse. Children above 3 may have to take... More
