Last time, when I went to the chauhar Ghati, was in April of 2016. That time we climbed the mountain rail track(haulage way) from Jodinder Nagar to Barot via Winch Camp.
This track is the only one of its kind in the whole world. Then we walked fourteen kilometers along the road from Barot to Badagram. The stay at Badagram and camping at Rajgunda was done respectively on the second and third night of this trip. On the last day of the trip we trekked from Rajgundha to Bir-Biling-the world paragliding station, where one of us glided in the air.
Check the links given above for all of these past stories. Today, I am going to share with you the story of my visit of Dev Pashakot temple in Tikkan. Dev Pashakot is known as the PAHADI WAZIR (mountain minister), who does the justice. Dev Hurang Narayan and Ghaddoni Narayan are the other famous Devta of the valley.

Temple is at the bank of the uhl river which contains the transparent water. Being at depression, you can not look at the peaks, but can sight the villages on the slopes of mountains at an elevation angle of more than 60 degrees.
