One of Rakkh’s best Himachal treks is our trek to the Dibnu Mata temple, a local temple in the adjourning village of Ghamrota. This trek will test your stamina, as you cross the village Ghamrotha and the pine forest. Stop by to visit the temple and admire the panorama that greets you. During winters, you can also take part in a Himachal snow trek that our resort in Palampur
organizes, when the temple and indeed the entire village is blanketed in white snow.
The Dorzong Monastic Institute is another intricate monastery located at the foothills of the mighty Dhauladhars and is a few hour’s trek away from our resort in Palampur. This trail takes you through dense pine and deodar forests across meandering streams. Once at the Institute, you can get an insight into the lives of the Buddhist students and monks residing there. An unforgettable experience that takes you through quintessential Himachal!
One of the most popular temples in the region is the Gadh temple
, another temple that involves a trek. The Gadh temple is dedicated to the ‘Bhaybhanjanaya’ deity, one of the incarnations of Goddess Durga. ‘Gadh’ means small fortress or citadel and is named after the small fortress/ citadel dating back to the old kingdom of Kangra, which is located at the top of the hill. Legend has it that the fortress derives its strength from the temple and was immortal as long as the deity was given her worship every day.
