A Beautiful walk from Pir Bindli to Monolithic Temples of Masroor in Kangra District of Himachal Pradesh, India || 3 Kilomters walk from Pir Bindli to Masroor

It was an unplanned visit to Ellora of Himachal Pradesh aka Masroor Monolithic Temples in Himalayan State of India. Main plan was to explore Wild Wings of Pong Dam, but this place was just 10 kilometers from our guest-house. It was early morning when I took bus from Nagrota Surian to Dharmshala which dropped me at Pir Bindli. Let's have a quick Photo Journey from Pir Bindi to Masroor which was 3 kilometers stretch on foot...This was really fortunate that I didn't get direct bus till Masroor and had got this lovely opportunity to walk for three kilometers from Pir Bindli station to Masroor Monolithic Temples. btw, by Monolithic Temples we mean a series of Temples made up of carving a huge Hill in Himachal Pradesh. This series of temples was situated on top of a Hill Station. More photographs of Masroor Monolithic temples can be seen at http://phototravelings.blogspot.in/2012/02/ellora-of-himachal-pradesh-maintained.htmlOn the way from Pir Bindli to Masroor we saw various birds although could not capture most of them. This whole region is extremely rich in terms of natural resources and wildlife which is very well conserved by Wildlife department of Himachal Pradesh, India ! The bird above shown in Grey Buschat, which was flying very fast from one branch to another.Masrur is exactly three kilometers from Pir Bindli. This meter-board shows that I had completed one kilometer walk towards the temples of Masroor. Road between Pir Bidli and Masroor is amazing and good number of buses move between Nagrota Surian & Masroor.This whole walks was wonderful due to pleasant weather around Dhauladhar mountains of Himalayas. Above Photograph shows a tree of Gooseberries with few of the fruits on it. Although there were very few gooseberries as compared to regular seasonHere is another photograph of Grey Buschat in silhouette form.Another Photograph showing more Gooseberries on the way from Pir Bindli to Masroor Monolithic Temples in Himalayan State of IndiaThere are few villages on the way and houses in hills are really amazing. Here is a photograph showing Buffalo tied to a rope outside a houseThere are many other places to visit around this area like Kangra, Dharmshala, Palampur, Baijnath, Bir Billing, pong Dam, Mcleodganj etc. There are many Photo Journeys from these plays and you may want to check themPalampur @ http://phototravelings.blogspot.in/2010/07/glimpses-of-palampur-town-with.htm McLeodganj - http://phototravelings.blogspot.in/2009/12/random-journey-to-mcleodganj-with-my.htmBir Billing - THE place for paragliding - http://phototravelings.blogspot.in/2010/07/travelling-camera-sharing-some-high.htmDharmshala - http://phototravelings.blogspot.in/2011/04/tour-de-dharmshala-stadium-quick-photo.htmPong Dam - http://phototravelings.blogspot.in/2012/02/maharana-pratap-sagar-aka-pong-dam-lake.htmBaijnath - http://phototravelings.blogspot.in/2009/08/historical-shiva-temple-baijnath.htmlThis early morning walk form Pir Bidli to Monolithic Temples of Masroor was unmatchable. Wonderful weather made it more exciting with muscial sounds of birds all around and green/fresh vegetables in the fields on both sides of the road. Apart from vegetables, there were some fields of wheat which is main crop of winters in Himachal Pradesh.A lady enjoying sunbath in courtyard of her home with slanted roof. These slanted roofs are typical examples of houses in Himachal Pradesh and roof is basically made up of slates which are created out of the shiny rocks found in mountains which get snowfall in winters. These rocks are considered very strong and that's the main reason these slates are created out of these. If you have ever gone to Bhagsunag, you must have such black rock on those hillsIt was time for folks to come out of their homes and move towards offices. Many folks from these villages walk down to Pir Bindli to get bus for their offices and some of the them try to catch the first morning bus which comes to Masroor.And here was the final reward of the walk. This photograph shows Rockcut Temples of Masroor which were carved out of a huge hill in Masoor. There is a wonderful view of Dhauladhar Mountains from this place.

This meter-board shows that I had completed one kilometer walk towards the temples of Masroor. Road between Pir Bidli and Masroor is amazing and good number of buses move between Nagrota Surian & Masroor.This whole walks was wonderful due to pleasant weather around Dhauladhar mountains of Himalayas.

Here is a photograph showing Buffalo tied to a rope outside a houseThere are many other places to visit around this area like Kangra, Dharmshala, Palampur, Baijnath, Bir Billing, pong Dam, Mcleodganj etc. There are many Photo Journeys from these plays and you may want to check themPalampur @ http://phototravelings.blogspot.in/2010/07/glimpses-of-palampur-town-with.htm McLeodganj - http://phototravelings.blogspot.in/2009/12/random-journey-to-mcleodganj-with-my.htmBir Billing - THE place for paragliding - http://phototravelings.blogspot.in/2010/07/travelling-camera-sharing-some-high.htmDharmshala - http://phototravelings.blogspot.in/2011/04/tour-de-dharmshala-stadium-quick-photo.htmPong Dam - http://phototravelings.blogspot.in/2012/02/maharana-pratap-sagar-aka-pong-dam-lake.htmBaijnath - http://phototravelings.blogspot.in/2009/08/historical-shiva-temple-baijnath.htmlThis early morning walk form Pir Bidli to Monolithic Temples of Masroor was unmatchable. Wonderful weather made it more exciting with muscial sounds of birds all around and green/fresh vegetables in the fields on both sides of the road. Apart from vegetables, there were some fields of wheat which is main crop of winters in Himachal Pradesh.A lady enjoying sunbath in courtyard of her home with slanted roof. These slanted roofs are typical examples of houses in Himachal Pradesh and roof is basically made up of slates which are created out of the shiny rocks found in mountains which get snowfall in winters. These rocks are considered very strong and that's the main reason these slates are created out of these. If you have ever gone to Bhagsunag, you must have such black rock on those hillsIt was time for folks to come out of their homes and move towards offices. Many folks from these villages walk down to Pir Bindli to get bus for their offices and some of the them try to catch the first morning bus which comes to Masroor.And here was the final reward of the walk. This photograph shows Rockcut Temples of Masroor which were carved out of a huge hill in Masoor. There is a wonderful view of Dhauladhar Mountains from this place.

It was an unplanned visit to Ellora of Himachal Pradesh aka Masroor Monolithic Temples in Himalayan State of India. Main plan was to explore Wild Wings of Pong Dam, but this place was just 10 kilometers from our guest-house. It was early morning when I took bus from Nagrota Surian to Dharmshala which dropped me at Pir Bindli. Let's have a quick Photo Journey from Pir Bindi to Masroor which was 3 kilometers stretch on foot...This was really fortunate that I didn't get direct bus till Masroor and had got this lovely opportunity to walk for three kilometers from Pir Bindli station to Masroor Monolithic Temples. btw, by Monolithic Temples we mean a series of Temples made up of carving a huge Hill in Himachal Pradesh. This series of temples was situated on top of a Hill Station. More photographs of Masroor Monolithic temples can be seen at http://phototravelings.blogspot.in/2012/02/ellora-of-himachal-pradesh-maintained.htmlOn the way from Pir Bindli to Masroor we saw various birds although could not capture most of them. This whole region is extremely rich in terms of natural resources and wildlife which is very well conserved by Wildlife department of Himachal Pradesh, India !

If you liked this post and found it helpful, I would request you to follow these things when traveling -

  1. Manage your waste well and don’t litter
  2. Use dustbins. Tell us if you went to a place and found it hard to locate a dustbin.
  3. Avoid bottle waters in hills. Usually you get clean water in hills and water bottles create lot of mess in our ecosystem.
  4. Say big no to plastic and avoid those unhealthy snacks packed in plastic bags. Rather buy fruits.
  5. Don't play loud blaring music in forests of jungle camps. You are a guest in that ecosystem and disturbing the locals (humans and animals) is not polite
