But this place left us equally mesmerized, Nestled in the lap of the Himalayas, a place known for British Architecture. 

It is the second oldest church in North India which was constructed in the Neo-gothic style. Amused by the construction at that height, it stands tall boasting of its historic journey. All we did when we reached up there is stood at the corner of the church and stared at it without speaking a word. It was a very peaceful moment for us as we experienced the best view during the night. (Here again at mall road, just be carefull about the sight seeing vendors who just keep barging at you while you walk past them).

As we reached this place, our driver warned us about monkeys snatching stuff from the tourists. Scared as we were, I was the only one carrying my phone to click a few pictures. That is how I managed to click this picture of The statue of Lord Hanuman which stands 108 feet tall on the hill overlooking the city. The enitre time I was there, I just wondered how did they manage to build this statue and put it up there at such a height!

(Located at Mall Road) The rusty old look of it and thirst for some freshly brewed coffee pulled us in here. The moment you enter in here you will imagine how this place would be looking like during the British rule.

Ever Wondered? Why Sunset is much colorful than the sunrise??? (Location - on our way back to the city from Jakhu Temple)

We went for the Yak ride, trough mushy little pathways (sometimes it just felt that we would fall down flat at the ground having our faces smashed up), Sightseeing at the hill top (Incase you want to have a view through the telescope, beware of the vendors and bargain well ;)), Trekking (We were lazy logs, but we did walk for like atleast half hour). Oh, and don't you miss the Maggie at Maggie point and this amazingly amazing dish called Tukpa (Available in both veg and non-veg, the spices in the cold shivering wether will just keep you going).
