  Observatory Hill
by sachara

Observatory Hill is a holy place for Hindus and Buddhists. There are small temples and many prayerflags.
The view from the Obsevatory Hill at the tea gardens and the city with always the Himalayan mountains at the background is fantastic.

Directions: From the centre (the Mall) you take the path to the right, follow the signs, pass the yard of the old english -style Hotel Windermere and after a short climb you reach the top of the hill.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
