Snow View Point
A great place on a clear day. We saw the High Himalyas in the distance and I took a look through the binoculars for a fee of 10INR … Well worth it. It is nice to roam around the wooded hilltop where there is also a pleasure garden with rides for young people and also some shops. The ropeway ride up the hill is short but also fun.
