Overview

Churdhar Trek – Journey to Shirgul Mahadev – Highest peak in outer Himalayas

Churdhar is the highest peak in Sirmour district and also the highest peak in the outer Himalayas and offer 360 degree view of himalayalas. This trek is surrounded by wildlife sanctuary. The total covered area of this sanctuary is 56.16 square kilometers as notified on 15 November 1985 (Wikipedia). This is a holy place related with Shri Shirgul Maharaj (Chureshwar Maharaj), a deity widely worshipped in Sirmour and Chaupal. Trek is bit challenging at few points and you may need to prepare for this in advance. You may find how to prepare for a Himalayan trek here.

Since you will not find anything on the trek you should carry every essential for this trek. We find many first time trekkers feeling exhausted due to steep hike but they stay motivated since you can see peak right in front of your eyes. Once you reach top you will see 360-degree view of Himalayan range. The view is worth hiking and you definitely get relieved and relaxed after reaching the top. It’s a reward for all the hard work.

Itinerary

Day 1 - Chandigarh to Tisri (On Trek)

While few people start a day earlier and rest at Trek base from where they start their hike, alternatively you can start early morning from Chandigarh on day 1 and once reaching Noradhar you can start your hike to Churdhar. In Noradhar which is also base for this trek you can find few Dhabas and shops where you can find essentials for the trek. Initial hike is bit challenging as it is steep and also if it’s sunny you may find sun bit harsh at some times as there is no shade. After sometime you will enter the forest which is a wildlife sanctuary. You will not find much water spots on this trail except 2-3 points so carry enough water for cooking and stay hydrated. Once you reach Jam Nallah you may set up the camp or hike further to Tisri from where Churdhar peak will be clearly visible. You may camp here for the day before you make final hike to peak next day. Since you will not find anything on the trek you should carry every essential for this trek.

Day 2 – Tisri to peak and back

You can start your hike the very next day from here. This will be your final hike and it is going to be difficult as hike is bit steep at few points. The Sirgul Mahadev Idol will be visible throughout the day 2. We find many first time trekkers feeling exhausted due to steep hike but they stay motivated since you can see peak right in front of your eyes. Once you reach top you will see 360-degree view of Himalayan range. The view is worth hiking and you definitely get relieved and relaxed after reaching the top. It’s a reward for all the hard work. You may start ascending to Noradhar after spending sometime here.
