My tip will be to take some Saline dry food and water from the way of Sitakundu to Chandranath hill. There is a shop on top of the hill but the cost of the product price is double. If you are visiting with family don’t try to track with ladies and children. Because, the top of the hill is 1152 feet up from the general land. It will be tough to reach for ladies and children one more thing, try to put your bags down the hill. There is a shop to put things.
