The Shali Tibba Hike


The Shali Tibba (2867m) is the highest peak in the vicinity of Shimla. It is a magnificent isolated pinnacle with a Kali temple on the top. The ascent up to Shali is an ancient trail through dense pine forest and rolling alpine pastures. It is a steep and steady climb to the often mist enveloped peak. The peak commands an unforgettable view of endless snow cov¬ered ranges along with the Sutlej valley and the densely forested hills of Shimla, Fagu and Narkanda. For the avid photographer and nature lover, this trek offers the experience of a lifetime.


DAY 1: SHIMLA (2205 m) - MASHOBRA…16 kms.
Depart Shimla at 9 A.M. by jeep. Breakfast at Mashobra, noted for its apple orchards and thick woods of oak and cedar.

Steep descent through dense forests and picturesque glades till Thaila located on the banks of the Nauti River at the bottom of the valley.

A hot and steady climb till Gulthaini

GULTHAINI - KHATNOL (1850 m)...3kms.
From Gulthaini it is a steady climb for one and a half-hours till Khatnol,, an isolated village perched amidst rolling fields. Halt at the Khatnol Rest House for a well-deserved rest along with a sumptuous lunch. In the evening one can explore the village and walk along the beautiful little tracks leading to enchanting spots. Dinner and O/N in rest house.

DAY 2: KHATNOL - SHALI TIBBA (2867 m) - KHATNOL...9 kms.
Start the climb early in the morning to Shali. The landscape changes dramatically as one follows the ancient trail towards the peak. It is a three-hour climb at a leisurely pace with ample time to stand and stare at the surrounding magnificence and the imposing peak ahead. The final climb is a tough one and is amply rewarded by the breathtaking view from the top. It is a must to visit the historic temple where legend states that one’s wishes come true. After lunch and a frenzied session of photograph, start the surprisingly quick descent back to Khatnol where the jeep picks one up to return to Shimla.
