The trail continues over the crest and comes across several ascents. The view from the pass is just mind blowing. To the south lie the Kangra valley and the distant plains of Punjab in a blue haze, while up north rises wave upon waves of ranges like the Pir Panjal to the north, Kishtwar to the west, Bara Bangahal to east and Manimahesh to the northeast.
