My friends and I started the journey at Bir village.I would prefer to begin at the beginning of the day as the sun shines in a variety of hues. It was the time of Holi and the day began by displaying colours within Bir village.The trek begins located on the northern-east part that runs through the village.Billing is easy to access via motor, but we decided to relax in the natural and hike to the top, where we had to take a flight back.Trek begins in rough terrain and then crosses on the main highway four times.The road is well-maintained and easy.The route can be completed within 4-5 hours, and the terrain isn’t difficult.However there is one section that is extremely steep and difficult.
