  • Trip introduction

    This day trek from Kullu/Manali provides the best of mountain myths and Himalayan beauty, offering you a great adventure. You’ll have a day of good climbing along spectacular trails, and will see a little bit of Himachali life and legend en route.

    The trail starts off with a stiff climb but it eases out into a gentle slope after the first kilometre. You’ll walk through small villages, deodar and fir trees, and along streams. It can be strenuous in parts, so you can expect to spend the whole day out.


    Bijli Mahadev is a temple situated close to Chansari village, located 14 kms from Kullu. Legend has it that the idol of Lord Shiva was struck by lightning and shattered into pieces. The priest put it back together using butter. But every now and then, lightning strikes it again, and the priest has to reassemble it in a similar manner. Locals view this lightning as a blessing from Lord Shiva, and so the temple is famous. During the festival of Shivratri, hordes of worshippers visit, but you’ll be going during winter, so you can expect peace and quiet.

    • Trek up to over 7870 feet in just one day to see spectacular views of Kullu and Parvati valleys
    • Trek through forests filled with wild orchids and rare birds species
