It's amazingly beautiful. Mountains, rivulet, forests, jungle trails...all within 45 minutes from the city. Entry is cheap. There are hardly any administrative arrangements there. One restaurant, that too not very good. Carry your own stuff to eat.

A nice walk within this area. Snow covered the road, so need to walk carefully. Met with cute squirrels, offering nuts and they ate it straight away.
