Trek to Bijli Mahadev
Bijli Mahadev is one of the most popular Himalayan treks with moderate difficulty. Legend says that the chief deity of Malana was passing through this route carrying a basket full of Gods of Kullu. Somehow his basket opened and all the gods blew over Kullu, since then this region is known as the Valley of GodsThe Bijli Mahadev Pass Trek, which stretches from an elevation of 2,050 meters to 3,660 meters, despite being one of the moderate and low altitude treks in Himachal Pradesh requires the trekker to get acclimatized to the prevailing conditions..
The Bijli Mahadev Pass Trek covers a fascinating route with amazing view of Deo Tibba and Pin Parvati range. The journey covers the spectacles of Kullu valley, passing through a rich forest that is a home to several animal and bird species. Further, the trail cutting across small and gushing streams and walking through narrow ridges makes it more adventurous and strenuous.
