Day 1

Manali is cuddled up in the mounts of the Himachal Pradesh, India near the north end of the Kullu Valley, at the height of 6725 feet above sea level. This place is a beauty in itself and attracts tourists for Manikaran Gurudwara, Vashisht Temple, Naggar Castle, Manu Temple and Jogini Waterfalls.

Yes, this piece of writing will take you directly from seat to the Jogini Waterfall for experiencing the nature, water and beauty altogether. Our (I and my friend Afif ) visit to Jogini Waterfall wasn't planned. Jogini falls trek has a special space in our heart because this was our first trek together so far!

About Jogini Waterfall

The Jogini waterfall is shaped by a stream which is fused into Beas River in the way of a stream's current. It is one of the famous spots to visit in Manali and also one among the famed places to explore in Himachal Pradesh. It flows from a height of approx. 150 feet through numerous stages. A small puddle at the base is shaped by the fall where tourists can dive and bath just for fun. The water flow is chock-full in the rainy season, and it is advised not to jump in this period. Jogini Mata Temple is situated at the base of the fall. It is a revered location to the neighboring villages. The residents often perform the tonsure (mundane) ceremony here.

The trekking route to Jogini Waterfalls is very popular and considered as one of the best short treks near Manali. The march through a tapered lane next to Vashisht temple crossing the apple plantations, towering pine trees and small water brooks leads you to your destination. You can also find some eating place and guest houses here. A mild walk for 1 hour will take you to the base of the waterfall. Though, after walking for 15 more minutes; you can reach the top of the jogini waterfall. It would take 3 hours to reach Vashisth Temple from here. Entire trek path is picturesque through beautiful rural communities allied with the vast gorges. Trekking here would give you a chance to explore and learn more about the attractive local beauty and rural life in Himalayan villages.
