Explore colossal vultures, a tiger decked temple, majestic peaks and mesmerising views in this day trek. This 15 kilometre, moderate difficulty trek starts from Patnitop (J&K) and ends at the historical temple at Sudh Mahadev (J&K). It's a long day walk over a defined trail with a sharp descent at the end. Water is available throughout this route.

Climbing "Billo ki Powri"

"Billo ki powri" is 270 steps carved in rock face and it towers over Kud town. These stairs bear an uncanny resemblance to the straight stair over Cirith Ungol that Tolkien writes about in his book, The Lord of the Rings. Although the exact date of this landmark is debatable and lost in the shrouds of time, locals claim it was built by the former king of Chenani as a shorter and easier access to Batote town.
