About The Event
Trek to the electric hills of Bijli Mahadev
Located on top of Mathan hills, is the legendary Bijli Mahadev temple. A 15 km approach by foot from Kullu town to the top of this hill is an experience in itself. There is a 12 km long motorable road that trekkers can take; but the real charm of the trek lies in the interior of Kais Wildlife Sanctuary, if you take the trail from Bijli Mahadev to Naggar.
The sylvan surroundings of the quiet valley are mesmerizing, with a wide array of deodar and pine forests. This is complimented by the beautiful apple, pomegranate and pear orchards of Jana Village. The trek becomes more interesting with overnight camping inside a forested ridge at Matikochar. As you exit the valley and reach Naggar, you’ll learn that it’s a wonderfully satisfying weekend trek.
