Overall Guide : This place leaves a re-visit taste with one. It is a real haven for trekkers - Horseback riding is possible but bargaining with the local vendors is a must before hiring the horse. Exploring the entire town on a horse... more is a must try. Dolphin's nose is too good during winters - trying in summers aint advisable..plum farms are plenty & plethora of picturesque spots...Ever green valley (former name-Suicide point) has nothing to offer apart from petty shops...devil's kitchen would be a cave explorer's paradise provided the authorities sanction permission - mostly they don't... Of all the places I'd been this is the most ideal spot for a vacation...
Not to be missed Dolphins Nose , Berijam , Trekking spots

Overall Guide : The lake area needs more maintenance in terms of cleanliness. The Observatory is the least visited place - it should be given wider publicity. All the Falls should have more facilities for tourists.
Not to be missed buy chocolates , visit the observatory , boating in the lake
Overall rating 6
Overall Guide : very useful
