We reach Jogi bhilangi by 6:00 PM at Book a camp (Eden Riverside Camp) for one night. The ambience of the camp was very awsm with tasty food. ( Plz bring ur own Hard drinks + hookah + dry nasha Things to enjoy the utmost DJ night) the wake up early as breezy Morning was very soothing and naturally healing.
U can go to short distance trekking (not a proper trekking )

We first went to the Tip in Top point to see some peaks( Price per person 20 rps) but due to heavy fog we couldn't ( so plz go to tip in top point in later afternoon after fog settled down) ,there is nothing else . literally nothing else to see. After disappointing from there we went bulla lake ticket price 150 rps (including boating ) .. maily this place only for children to enjoy duck and boating. After boating and we had Lunch ...there are lots of dhaba and restaurants in the way.. mostly all of them have good food at reasonable prices . After having lunch at vvama restaurant we headed towards tarkeshwar Mahadev temple . This temple is situated deep in the valley and surrounded by alpine so u have trekk down through properly made cemented trekk. If u are spiritual u should go to this historic temple.
