Hotel f (Read More)un and food is good. Some place in Mandu is also neglected like Hanthi Mahal, Baj Bahadur Makbra. We felt that voice echo is more powerful in Baj Bahadur tom instead of echo point. Lohani caves are wonderful . Rani Roopmati Pavilion is ok ok. Hindola mahal is good .Gaddeshah Ki Dukan is also good and Andhi and Andhe ka mahal is also good but bit difficult to reach there. Konkar kho fall in this is wonderful site seen place. Over all good experience, but better collect all places names and their history from google it will add more adventure to your tour.
