The local people here have been constantly offering prayers to the Snake God (Nag Devta) at this peak which is testament to its sanctity. They believe that the Snake God protects their cattle from snake bites.Much of a belief I would say.This place has been frequently visited by trekkers and adventure enthusiasts from all over the world for its panoramic beauty and high elevation.
