Leaning on the edge of the cliff you can have invigorating and panoramic views of splendid Himalayan range and enchanting valley of Kumaon region. There is a natural lattice around the rock here and it is believed that barren women who take their head out of the hole in the rock are blessed with a baby. According to myths a group of devotees were on their visit to Kailash Mansarovar and at this dangerous rock climbing point they prayed Lord Shiva to help them. Lord Shiva blessed the guru with power and asked him to hit the rock four times. A hole appeared on the hard rock surface when the guru hit it the fourth time.
Methodist Church: Just before you hit Chowfulli on the way up, a black metal strip on a tree points out the way to the Methodist Church. The narrow path has been cut in rock and polished smooth over the years by passing hooves and feet, so watch your step. The church is homely, in keeping with the town it was built for. Its walls and tin roof are well preserved. The steeple has a bell presented by a certain Barbara, in memory of her parents, on Christmas Day. The only way to find out what treasures lie concealed behind the churchs low wooden door is to come between 3 and 4 pm on a Sunday. At other times, you will find it locked.
