Bijli Mahadev had been in my bucket list since the first time i had visited Manali. Having heard about it a lot, we decided we will make a visit to this place soon. Finally this time we planned a trek to BIjli Mahadev. Since we were staying in Kais, our trek plan from kullu changed into off-roading in the Gypsy via Kais Sanctury. Although the ride shook us completely we don't regret it a bit. this ride will take you through a beautiful jungle also known as kais sanctuary. you can take breaks from the difficult ride and just walk a bit for sometime before resuming the ride. But beware there might be animals around since its a sanctuary. Nevertheless the walk is worth the risk :)
After two hours of that ride what awaits you is a beautiful panoramic view on top of the hill with a small temple surrounded by greenry all around.
After visiting the temple, we just sat at the vast lush green grass overlooking the entire Kullu valley, bhuntar airport. While one side you can see Beas, the other side of the temple gives you a view of Parvati valley.
The temple is one of the oldest and has a very unique story attached to it.
Unlike other temples, its clean and not crowded. Since both the trek and the ride is a little difficult hence not many people around.
After your visit to the temple, you can have some nice meals at the food joints there.
Incase interested, you can also hire tents there for night camping.
while going back we decided to trek down from the other way in order to have the taste of both the sides.
The trek down is easier than the ride as there are steps made and you just have to keep stepping down. You can ask your driver to drop you at the temple and pick you up from the kullu side.
Overall a beautiful sight with no crowd and unnecessary noise.
