A 5.6 kilometre day trek leads you through fir groves, sprawling grasslands, dense forests, small ponds, a mysterious cave and panoramic views. The beauty of "Karol ka Tibba" trek is that it fits this immense natural bounty in a short day trek. "Karol ka Tibba" is the highest hill around Solan town in Himachal Pradesh. In this trek we visit Karol temple; a temple dedicated to goddess Kali situated at the top of Karol Ka Tibba. The panoramic view from the temple is beautiful and panoramic. The trekking route also passes through the famous Pandava Gufa or Pandava cave, believed to be the oldest and longest cave in the Himalayas.
The former hunting ground of the King of Patiala, this is one of the less popular wildlife sancturaies of the country. Situated in the lap of the Himalayas and a very well maintained place, this place is rich with flora and fauna. The main animals you will find here are the European red deer, goral, Wild Boar, Sambhar, langur, Himalayan Black Bear, Flying squirrel, porcupine and others. The birds that are mainly spotted here are Chir Pheasant, Khalij Pheasant and the Golden Eagles. This sanctuary is a part of the Golden Triangle of Himachal Pradesh and also one of the main attractions. There are however no placs to stay in this place so rich with the blessings of nature.
Sidh Baba Ka Mandir
Located in the Mihani Village of the Chail District, this is a popular holiday resort. The main reason which attracts tourists to this resort are the beautiful views from the terrace as well as most of the room windows. The staff is extremely friendly and the way they maintain cleanliness and hygeine is remarkable. The food served is very good and the rooms are very good too. They have a separate games arena with many indoor games for the guests. However, all the rooms do not have great views and so you will have to go to the terrace for better views.
Gurudwara Shri Paonta Sahib
Next morning we started our journey towards Chandigarh, took a halt at the Gurudwara at Paonta Sahib. This Gurudwara Paonta Sahib has linkages to the tenth Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh and the Sikh leader Banda Bahadur. Its original name was Paontika. "Paon" in Hindi means feet and "tika" in Hindi means became stable. Gurudwara was huge and quiet peaceful with a divine atmosphere. The food provided at the Langar was also very tasty. Bandi who was planning to skip lunch ended up eating the most.
