- Don't miss the sunset and sunrise here, as they are the most important reasons to visit Netarhat.
- Netarhat is cold, however not so cold that you'd have to carry woolens.

Netarhat is a useless place to visit. No good hotel, no restaurant, no light, no public transport. People are unnecessary hyped about dunrise and sunset is similar to your home. Mongolia point/sunset (Read More) point is useless. Even if you want to visit then plan only after confirmed booking only in Pravat Vihar (unless you are a senior Forest Dept official).
