Kunjkharak : From Here You Get A Magnificent 380 Km Broad View Of The Himalayan Range. A Unique Feature Of This Moist Temperate Forest Is The Khoola (Jhoola) Moss That Carpets The Floor Below. This Moss Absorbs Water And Helps In Retaining Moisture In The Forest. However, Due To Indiscriminate Extraction And Collection For Its Use In Several Cosmetic Products, This Moss Has Become Highly Endangered. Evenings Are Magical As The Setting Sun Transforms The Icy Himalayas Across Kunjkharak Into Gold.
