A half day's (2 hours hr 30 min one way ) comfortable hike from Chestnut House, the trail leads to the picturesque Panayali village. Here cherry cheeked kids watch you curiously and the villagers are more than happy to offer you a local lunch. Its warm village hospitality at its most spontaneous. On the other hand have a picnic above the village in the pine forests and get a 360 degree view of the valleys around.
