Another attraction at Veda peak is the famous waterfall. This area is considered one of the best locations in the district.
Winter is the best time to visit Veda when the weather is the best with average temperature to make your visit an enjoyable and comfortable one. The snowcapped hilly ranges are an added treat during this season.
