Major Harbhajan Singh served in the Indian Army and lost his life while escorting a mule caravan from his battalion headquarters in Tekula to Dengchukla in 1968. Harbhajan Singh’s body was found when a soldier dreamt of him telling him exactly where to find the body.

Really really amazing place to visit in Gangtok. It's really an awesome place with an beautiful climate n waterfalls on the Ghat road which is Fully covered with fog. Most attractive tourist spot. Never miss such an beautiful spot.
It's a great place where you'll find everything from a cafe, a souvenir shop, a parking place to breathtaking views of mountains and hills along with the big Shiv statue located on top of a nearby mountain with waterfall in back. Simply breathtaking. The only reason I'm reducing a star is lack of clean and functional public toilets.
This is a very beautiful place. Baba Harbhajan Singh we salute you. You always stay in our mind. We love you. If anyone want to know Baba Harbhajan Singh then see "PALTAN" Movie.
