Duration  :   03-04 Days
Season     :   January to December
Region     :   Kullu – Manali
Grade       :   Easy
Maximum Altitude : 3000 Mts.

The place Bijlimahadev is full of mystery and miracles. The name comes from the fact that the lightening ( Bijli ) strikes the Shiva linga inside the temple and breaks into pieces. The Shiva linga is joined together and installed in a special occasion using a locally made adhesive of butter. One can witness the charred part (especially on the walls) inside the temple which is due to the flames resulted during lightning.

***During the month of January, February and March majority of the time you may have to walk on the snow. Participants need to be well equipped for snow trek.
