Exciting Journey to the Hatu Peak and Hatu Maa Temple, Narkanda (Shimla)

Journey to the Hatu Peak


Today, I will discuss another journey to the top of a hill, earlier, I shared my journey to Prashar Lake, Shakti Devi Temple, and Tracking to Bharmani Maa Temple which all were situated on the hilltop. When a person goes to a hill station then he loves to see hills and peaks. There are some peaks around us that are accessible by the road and one such beautiful peak is Hatu Peak near Narakanda (Himachal). People can easily reach the top of the hill by a narrow road which becomes slippery in the snow. Like most of the peak, the Hatu peak does give a great glimpse of the valleys and hills around. On the top, we can find the wooden temple of Hatu Maa. 

Hatu Maa Temple

The wooden temple shows the beauty of craftsman skills and gives us an opportunity to see the style of temples in this area. Hatu Peak is the famous and second highest peak in the Shimla region and the good point is that we can reach this point in our car; therefore, many people visit this place. The road to visit the Hatu peak is very narrow and some points, there is only a place for one car to cross. Already many videos on driving to Hatu peak are available on youtube. I have also made a small video of my journey and you can watch it below. 



It is also a place to find snow during the months of April-May or August-September. However, it all depends on the climate conditions that you will get snow at the top or not. There may be a good difference in temperature if you find the snow at the top like it happened with us. We were only in t-shirts; therefore, it was hard to sustain the coldness so we spent less time on the peak and came back. 

Arnav Hatu Peak

The height of the Peak is 3400 m or 11152 feet which makes it a quite high place. This place is 8 KM away from Narkanda town. Overall, Hatu Peak is a great place to visit and I will like to go here again.

Beautiful Mahakaleshwar Pandoi Devta ji Temple at Pandoa (Shimla)

 You are aware of my road trip on the stretch Nalagrah-Ramshehr-Arki-Basantpur-Luhri -ANNI. When from Basantpur-Tatapani Road, we take a right turn on MDR 22 towards Luhri and Rampur then we follow the Satluj river continuously and get a chance to see communities living near Satluj river and in this valley. We also get a chance to see their culture and beliefs. Today, I am going to talk about the Pandoi Devta temple situated just a few meters away from this road at Pandoa village. Himachal Pradesh can be known as a place of thousands of deities; therefore, we say it the land of Gods. This temple is not visible from the road and you need to take an unpaved road that is 300 meters long to reach this temple. Pandoi Devta temple is a set of one main temple and two Kothis.  At this place, we can find the same style of Shivlinga as we find at the Ujjain; therefore, this place is also known as Mahakaleshwar Pandoi Devta ji Shahib. It is believed that this Shivlinga was created by Pandavas dur
