- Khatnol to Shali Tibba Trek:
After you have reached Khatnol Village, the Shali Tibba trek starts. The distance from Khatnol to Shali Tibba is approx 7 kms (one way). The hike is easy and it will take between 3 to 5 hours to complete. After you finally the reach the Shali Peak, you’ll see almost all the major peaks near Shimla.
Note: The road has been stretched further 2kms from Khatnol towards Shali Peak. However, we recommend to park your vehicle in Khatnol itself as proper parking might not be available at the point where the road ends. Also the condition of the newly built road is not very good.
Trail details and Stay options:
The trekking trail is mostly covered with thick forest and presents a great experience. This jungle is also home of leopards and other wildlife. Therefore, we do not recommend trekking alone during evening and night time. After, a short hike you will reach the Shali Peak, from where you get amazing views of various Himalayan ranges.
Stay options at Shali Tibba are limited as there are no guest houses, or hotels at the top. There is a Sarai (hall) near the temple stairs which are available in case of emergency. You can ask the temple priest for keys if required. Setting up camps is also a possibility near the Sarai.
“A Humble Appeal – Please make sure not to drop any plastic wrappers, bottles and any kind of waste on the trail or near the temple. As a traveller, it is our responsibility to keep the Himalayas clean. “
