Arranged in the Churdhar Sanctuary in Shimla, Churdhar Peak is one of the most elevated crests in the Outer Himalayas. It scales to a stature of 3,657 meters, through the exquisite prairies and timberlands the distance to a Shiva symbol on the mountain. Hence, it’s well known with travelers and its closeness to Delhi makes it an immaculate weekend trek out of The Capital. Prashant, an alum from BITS Pilani, moved to the top and composed a record of his experience.
The second year of my school had finished and I was fretful to go to the Himalayas. It must be a short trek – due to constrained spending plan, time and in light of the fact that voyaging solo for a really long time wasn’t such a smart thought for a beginner such as me.
I was in Chandigarh at the time, I had choices for treks where I could achieve the beginning stage before the day’s over, and begin the trek the following morning. I started my examination, and in the wake of taking a gander at geographical maps, focused in on a conspicuous top toward the east of Solan, which rose to more than 3600m. Did some more research online and found that this crest was Churdhar-the most astounding top of the Shivalik Himalayas.
As my enthusiasm for Churdhar had developed, I experienced travel discussions and web journals on the web, to chalk out a schedule. From Chandigarh, one could go by street to Nauradhar/Nohradhar, from where it was a tough trek of 14-18 km to the Churdhar Peak. The crest was greatly respected by local people as there was a Shiva sanctuary at the top-site of a journey. Likewise, legend had it this was the spot where Hanuman-ji found the life-restoring Sanjivni booti. Another fascinating reality I went over was that in light of its stature and nearness to the fields, Churdhar, otherwise called Choor Chandni ki Dhar (the edge of the bangle of snow) was the wellspring of supply of ice to the gatherings of Jahan Ara at the Mughal court.
