Post breakfast depart Shimla at 9 A.M. by surface enroute crossing Mashobra, noted for its apple orchards and thick woods of oak and pine. Proceed via Baldhea along a fascinating dirt trek to Gulshaini, a tiny hamlet situated at the base of the peak. Here we have a tendency to park the vehicle as to start the ascent.
From Gulshaini it is a gradual climb for one and half-hours (4 Kms) untill Khatnol (1850 m), an secluded village hovering amidst rolling fields. Halt at the Gushaini Forest Rest House/homestay/camps for a well-deserved rest along with a sumptuous lunch. In the evening one can explore the village and walk along the beautiful little tracks leading to enchanting spots. Dinner and O/N in Khatnol.
Start the climb early in the morning to Shali. The landscape changes dramatically as we follow the ancient trail towards the peak. It is a three-hour climb at a leisurely pace with ample time to stand and stare at the surrounding magnificence and the imposing peak ahead. The final climb is a tough one and is amply rewarded by the breathtaking view from the top. It is a must to visit the historic temple where legend states that one’s wishes come true. After lunch and a frenzied session of photography, start the surprisingly quick descent back to Khatnol to pick up the luggage and continue the descent to Gulshaini.
One will be driven back to Shimla by late evening for a well-deserved and satisfying sleep with the memories of climbing the highest peak of the Shimla hills.
