Start early in the day to reach back Devalsari same day. Since the trek goes through the jungle and there is no defined path, I will recommend to hire a guide. You can ask people in Oothad village to accompany you, they shall be charging nominal rates.

If you are planning to stay on the top, then carry tents, food in good quantity since there is no shop on the way. However there is ‘Nag Devta’ temple on the top where devotees will come on festivals.
