More than 400 steps carved out of a rock face are called Billo ki Powri. The staircase leads to a point called the Dawariyai, which is also the take-off site for paragliding enthusiasts. The stairs are believed to have been carved by the former king of Chenani as a short cut to the town of Batote, and are a fine example of craftsmanship, given the lack of mechanical tools at the time when they were created. Due to extensive use over the years, the lower quarter of the staircase has all but eroded, leaving about 270 recognisable steps. The steps are quite steep and resemble a ladder rather than a staircase. The higher you climb, the more stunning becomes the view of the town of Kud. On a clear day, you can even see the national highway snaking through Chenani. During monsoon, the whole area is enveloped in thick clouds, making for an unforgettable experience.
