Trek to double docker is arduous so be prepared for some pain after the trek. Along with double decker definitely visit the swimming pool and the rainbow falls which is another 1-1.5 hour from double decker but worth visiting.

It was straight out of a national geographic channel! Worth all the huffing and puffing one had to undergo at one's age to reach there! Though the 3500 steps of the return journey are a bit of a killjoy, yet the feeling of achievement is...More
