    The Aadi Himani Chamunda Trek is one of Himachal Pradesh's most beautiful treks. The most well-known feature of the journey is the Aadi Himani Chamunda Temple. The route is well known among enthusiasts. The inhabitants' explanations for the temple's presence are fascinating.
    According to local legends, Goddess Chamunda slew two demons named Mund and Chand. Chamunda slaughtered them from the mountaintop by hurling large rocks at them. One of these stones is thought to be visible atop the Shiva Temple, which is located near the already-present Chamunda Devi Temple along the gorgeous Dharamshala-Palampur state route.

  • Additional Information
    • Day 1 Journey to Kangra
      Reach Kangra via different means of transportation.
      The distance between Kangra and Chamunda is only 17 kilometres.
      Then, you must have your dinner and head back to your room for an overnight stay.
    • Day 2 Reach Jia Village
      Feel the tranquil atmosphere at the Aadi Himani Chamunda Temple
      Get ready for the breathtaking view that the trek offers.
      Sample the local delicacies for lunch. You can even pack some for dinner as the availability of food shops near the temple is scarce.
      Reach Jia Village via bus to start the trek towards Himani Chamunda.
      When you embark on the trail, you will find some stairs.
      However, after some time, the slope becomes steeper. But, the magnificent view around will instil you with the determination to move ahead.
      After 3-4 hours, you will reach the Aadi Himani Chamunda Temple. 
      Take a look at the surroundings and admire the architectural prowess of the new temple. (The old temple was severely affected due to a fire a few years ago).
      For the overnight stay, you can rest in the temple dormitories. 
      You might face some issues as there is a distinct lack of light. It is advisable to carry torches, a power bank, matchsticks, and candles. 
      Keep in mind that the temperature in this region is quite low. Pack essentials, but you can get blankets from the temple. They charge a mere 100 INR per blanket for the night. 
      Have dinner and let your muscles rest for the descent journey the next day.
    • Day 3 Departure
      Visit the Khargoshini Temple and continue the journey down
      Admire the exquisite beauty of the rising sun amidst the Dhauladhar ranges.

      Soak in the beautiful views and come back to the Aadi Himani Chamunda Temple.
      Then, continue the descent and reach the endpoint to go back home.
