Just Awesome

This trek stretches across 3 to 4 mountains. It is a bit tiring but totally worth it. The feeling in the midst of the mountains is simply amazing. There are steps made so you can climb easily. It is best to visit early in the morning as there are no lights on the way so you cannot afford to visit after sunset. Also carry water and some food. Me and my friends completed the trek in 1 hour !! But it takes 2. 5 hours on an average for the climb. While you climb you will get overwhelmed by the beautiful scenes in the grand mountains. Totally worth.

Most Romantic, Adventurous, religious & Beautiful

Lovely place adventurous and religious as well as romantic hilly stations to visit here take bus from Pipariya to Pachmari, around 50 km distance now again we have to hire taxi to reach Chauragarh Shiva temple as we reached at Hiver now we have to take Bath at Kund then start to walk towards Chauragarh, we have to walk more then 5 Km from here, also we have to take water and drink to take it in the way because it is on height and I think it is the tallest hill in Satpura Wally, so we can tired and thirsty some on the we can't get water to drink some time, devotees took Baan (Trishul) 1. 25 Kg to 1250 Kg of weight to submit the Lord Shiva on Top of Chauragarh wow it is amazing to see how devotees do this impossible work bud god give them power for this. On top of we see around the temple ground thousands of trishul are submitted here and the scene is lookin beautiful adventurous and romantic around the temple many deep and dangerous hills seems. I have visited 3 times here. First time I was 10 year old went on foot more than 30 km walk. Due to religious thoughts we can't feel tired.

Amazing and adventurous journey on steps to reach the temple

It was an amazing journey. I have not travelled for so long (about 1360 stairs) and more before it. The entire way is very adventurous and tiring but the devotion to almighty Shiva kept me on moving. It needs a lot of energy drinks to have with you on the way. Monkeys are troubling throughout the way. At the top all networks works properly however there is no tower of any mobile company. Lord Shiva temple is very good and a lot of (several thousands ) big and small Trishools offered by devotees are placed here. The major need is the lack of facilities of drinking water and bathroom. No food or enables are available on the way. In all it was an interesting and adventurous journey.

Carry sufficient energy drinks

Lot of trekking involve. A whole day plan is required. It is advisable that sufficient cold drinks be carried with. Alternatively, take lime water every 200 meters for going up and coming back. This will reduce fatigue.
