Belpada is place to do an overnight stay.
Belpada is right opposite to KokanKada. Take route that goes towards KokanKada. From middle of KokanKada, take left route and start climb through left stream. The stream takes you to the fourth 'Ghal' in which the climb starts.
Then a staircase of 10 steps with each step being 8-10 feet comes across.
After the steps end, a huge rock cliff comes across which takes about 3 hours to climb. Climb through side of rocks and one can see a small tree of 'Umber'. Turn left here from the tree turning along a huge rock and enter the 4th 'Ghal' which takes to top.
The rocks of this 'Ghal' are made up of slate rocks which slides a lot. Be careful negotiating these rocks. After about 3 hours climb, the 'ghal' closes by a horizontal wall. This wall of 20 feet needs to be climbed with care and simple walk of another 30 mins takes to top of wall.
From here, turn to Right and reach a rock wall after 30 mins. 30 mins climb through this wall and another 30 mins trek takes to a plateau. Walk to other end of plateau to reach last rock wall. Cross the wall in another 30 mins and take last climb to reach top of Kokan Kada.
