A much better mountain peak than what I was expecting it to be. The hiking trails are pretty good even through you have to walk roughly two kilometres one side. If you have off road vehicle, you can adventure drive almost 95% of the trail.

The view to the valley and of the grass claded peaks are awesome, it rained a bit while we were there, luckily not so much. Its a relatively easy hike with beautiful views. Recommended to go in the evening or morning, there are no shades to escape from the scorching sun.

Full off road destination. It's a meadow that can be accessed only through a steep hill. Extremely remote.

We tried to ride up but had to give up midway because the hill was too steep and the path was completely broken. If you are planning to visit here, make sure to check with locals on the destination in m between the route as it is pretty hard to find.

Other than that, the hilltop offers great views and it has a camp site on one of its corner.
