The Scenic – Janjheli Valley


Bulah (Janjheli Valley)

Janjehli Valley, at a distance of 80 km from Mandi (Himachal, India) is a paradise for hikers, offering treks up to a height of 3,300 metres. Last month, I got an opportunity to travel to this less explored place, the picturesque valley of Janjehli has fewer tourists as compared to other similar popular trekking and camping destination as it’s not that popular yet on tourist map.

Around 6 km from Janjehli is a place called Bulah, I loved the place and mesmerized by its beauty, I stayed there in a camp for a night. For me traveling and spending a day in Janjehli Valley has been an enchanting and fascinating experience. It is a beautiful, tranquil and calm place, the beauty of which is enhanced by its lush green serene surroundings, apple orchards, hills covered with pine and deodar trees, a river flowing through various crisscrossed hills, numerous waterfalls, and breezy and fresh environment all around the valley. The valley adorned by snow during winters, is no less than heaven on the earth.Β At around 10 Km from Janjheli is a Shikari Devi Temple at a height of 3,332 metres above sea level. From the temple area, it offers a mesmerizing scenic and sunset view which is just soul stirring, the sunset view from here is like one of the most beautiful sunsets you will ever see.

Some more snapshots from my travel to this place:

  1. beautiful place !!

  2. Ah! I miss hills 😦

  3. Woww! Beautifully captured. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. Actually, the place is more beautiful than the snapshots which has been captured using a phone camera πŸ™‚

      • Then it’s difficult for me to even wonder how beautiful it would be.

        • The place looks more like Sonamarg or Gulmarg if I’ve to compare, but less explored and less known among tourists.

  4. Staying in the hills is for the fortunate. Blessed are they!

  5. How long was the trip?

  6. oooo boy u remind me bulah again
    this is bulah n ya its really beautiful how can i forget this beautiful place ever in my life

    n ya Chandigarh to janjheli it take 9 hour but the view all the way is mind blowing

    • Yes, that house or perhaps hotel or home stay is still under-construction. Yup, the beauty of the place is mind blowing, a serene place and less crowded.

  7. i was unlucky n not able to go to the shikari mata mandir it was full of snow everywhere n roads were blocked
    the roads r really scary if u go by car or something
    n endless if u go by walking
    thank u so much to post such beautiful picture

    • I went up to Shikari Mata by car, road is metalled up to Bulah, and after Bulah to Shikari it’s unmetalled road, though I didn’t feel scared while driving there but of course I was mesmerized by the beauty of the place. Thanks for sharing a bit of your story here πŸ™‚
