For those who wish to get an even better view of the sunrise over the Himalayas, they can get from the hotel. Half an hour before sunrise, a car leaves from the hotel to take those who want to come and see the view from the View Tower. This tower, in the army base camp, is the highest point in the valley. One can get magnificent views over immaculate sunrises over the whole Himalayan Range.
