This place is of high importance for Jainism. All the tirthankara except first attained enlightenment here. Lots of dharamsala are there for stay. Place is too much crowded during festivals. Also, do visit bhomiyaji temple situated at the foot of hill.

Climate is more or less good, mobile connectivity is a issue, start journey easy by 4am & try returning early so plan accordingly to reach by 6pm. Carry few big sticks and water & food. No children below 10.
