Tracking to Maa Bharmani Temple situated on the Hilltop (Sansal, Baijnath)


Maa Bharmani Temple, Baijnath


There are many beautiful places around us which are still not connected by the road and we can reach these places by tracking. At my native house in village Mandher (Baijnath), I used to see a small village on the hilltop from childhood and I always thought about reaching this place one days. My requests to reach there in childhood were not accepted by my parent because they thought it is too danger for a child to visit it. From my village, this place is situated at a sharp climb which makes the journey difficult.
The only way to reach this place is by foot because this place has no road connectivity because of its location on the hilltop.

Thanks to few friends, I started my journey to reach a small yet beautiful temple of Maa Bharmani situated at the hilltop. We took with us water, prepared tea, cooked food and maggi. It was wise decision to carry some water and eatables because these locations can be very hostile and we may not find any person on the way. There are two ways from villages sansal and mandher to reach this place. The way from Sansal village is much better and wide, however, I chose the way from Mandhar village side because it was near to me.



Regular commuters on this path take only one and half hour to climb to nearest village of Barahan on this route but people like me need slightly more time and rest on the way.

Taking a rest and drinking tea on the way, we reached a small village called Barahan. Even at this height, we can find all the facilities in this village like electricity, water taps, concrete roads and dish TVs. At meet a few old people in the village who were aware of my grand father and meet him in past because of the Govt Ration Depot held by him.

Barahan Village, Baijnath

Our destination, Maa Bharmani Temple was still away and we needed to climb more to reach it so we stayed in this village for some time and filled our water bottle. This small village provides a great view of life on hilly people who still enjoy a life depended on nature.


Eating food in the solitude of nature is a great enjoyment and one should carry some food with it because we feel tried after climbing. We also need to be aware of the dogs on the way because they can attack or bark at you by finding you strangers.

Next step was to reach the top of hill where Maa Bharmani Temple is situated. This temple serves a few village nearby villages and we found all facilities is this temple like a concrete floor, store-room and availability of electricity.


The temple w
as closed and the temple presit was not present when we reached the temple so we prayed to diety from the outside and enjoyed the view from top. The view from top is very nice and I was able to see my tiny house from the top.


After spending some time there, we started our back journey and started to descend. On the way, we burn some fire and cooked maggie. It was again a fun to enjoy self cooked hot maggie at this place. The time was 2:45 PM when we started our down journey because sun sets early in hills.


By 4:30 PM, we reached our home in Mandhar village slightly tried on the one day climbing and then come back. Overall, it was a great experience and fun to discover something so close but very farway.

To Shimla by Nalagarh-Ramshehar-Kunihar (Pics of Beautiful Scenery on the Way and my Experience)

I always love to travel by the roads less travelled because by doing so I get a chance to see things which are still hidden from the most of people. On my single day journey to Shimla from Ropar (Punjab) for some work, I decided to travel on the State Highway 16 by following the route Nalagarh-Ramshehar-Kunihar instead of going through the National Highway (NH) 5. Not only this route was shorter by 40 KMs, but I was also expecting some adventure on the way. This journey become a quite exciting and thrilling because I was travelling on this route in the month of July on a rainy day. Though, I was aware that this is a single road and I may face landslides if rain continued. Still, I was ready for the adventure and I started my journey early in the morning on Tata Indigo eCS. Till nalagarh, I faced heavy rain but rain slowed down as I crossed Nalagarh. The weather was very fine and it was drizzling throughout the journey.

My Journey to Masroor Rock Cut Temples (Kangra, Himachal Pradesh) with Pictures and Review

In this post, I am going to share the experience of my recent visit to famous Rock Cut Temples in Masroor Village of Kangra district in Himachal Pradesh. This village is about 38 KM away from Kangra Town and here we can see 15 rock-cut temples in Indo-Aryan style. I came to know about this place through the pictures of a friend on Facebook. This place looked very attractive in pictures so I decided to visit this place. I took the route through Dehra town situated at the bank of Beas river. The disadvantage of taking this route is poor road conditions. It is around 35 KM from Dehra. After a journey of one hour from Dehra, I reached the Masroor Rock Cut Temple site. When you reach the temple site, then you first see the backside of the temples.                                                          Masroor Rock Cut Temples The first view of Temples is very refreshing and I started exploring this place.

The most difficult drive was to reach Chhatrari to see the Historical Shakti Devi Temple. Chhatrari village is situated 40 KM from Chamba (HP) on the Chamba-Bharmour Road. I decided to visit this place on the return journey from Bharmour. The road to Chhatrari is a steep ascend and you need to be very cautious while driving on this road.
