Birpur Dam

An enjoyable trek where the trail changes landscapes at every other turn. Passing through rivers, streams, villages, mushroom and lychee farms, we stop at a pristine meadow to have lunch and end the day at Santala Devi. Since we hike for about an hour on the river bed, during monsoons your feet will get drenched.( carry spare socks)
