Janjehli




Janjehli is a picturesque hamlet situated 29 km from Kullu, Himachal Pradesh. Situated at the midst of thick forest and enchanting springs, the place is renowned as a hiker’s paradise offering various treks up to a height of 3320 m. Untouched by the frills of modernity, Janjehli provides an ideal getaway from the daily life chores, in a way quite different from that offerd by routine and packaged holidays.

Janjehli presents a charming picture of nature’s splendor at work; its lush green meadows surrounded by lofty pines and deodars and the meandering rivulet captivates the imagination of any nature lover. Pretty orchards carpet the left side of the village. It is said that, lured by the beauty of the place, the British first decided to make Janjehli as the summer capital, an offer which was eventually turned down by the then king of Janjehli.

Janjehli – Karsog (16 km), Janjehli - Budah Kaidar and Janjehli – Rampur are some interesting trekking routes running out of Janjehli.

The famous roofless temple of Shikari Devi and Shikari Devi Sanctuary are within 15 km from Janjehli.

Janjehli is 87 km from Mandi. From Mandi, a 32 km motor-able road leads to Gohar; the rest of the journey is on foot. Bajahi, 15-km from Gohar, amidst thick forests, has a well furnished rest house to stay overnight. From Bajahi, Janjehli is about 20-km away, accessible through a bridle path.

Kullu Manali Airport serves Janjehli. Nearest railway station is at Joginder Nagar.
