It is situated at a height of 10,236 feet above sea level and is the gateway to some of the picturesque Himalayan treks such as Serolsar Lake, Bajah Top, and inside the Great Himalayan National Park. It opens up in late March/early April and remains accessible till December. After that, snowfall completely envelopes the area and it is not safe to ambulate anymore.

One can board a private cab from Jibhi or Shojato reach this pass in just one hour. The road there is quite slippery and has many sharp turns and hence it is not endorsed to drive there yourself unless you are somewhat of an expert on curvy Himalayan roads. There is a temple enthusiastic to Jalori Mata and some stalls/shops for food and refreshments near the top.

It is a 5 km trail that starts at Jalori Pass. Trekking is the most beloved way to get to the lake. Aside from the beautiful aesthetic pleasure, there is one alluring fact about the lake. Although Silver Oak trees enclosed the lake, there is not a single fallen leaf on the shore. This is due to the latency of two sparrows named Aabo that live near the lake. Locals accept that if a leaf falls on the lake’s edge, these sparrows rapidly take it in. This lake is positioned in the Tirthan Valley of Himachal Pradesh, and the best time to visit this place is within March-June and October-November.

This temple is positioned below the village of Chehni, in another village named Bagi which is acclaimed for Shringra Rishi Temple. It is a three-storied temple that is devoted to the “Devta” of the Banjar Valley i.e. Rishi Shringra. Shringra Rishi temple is a short 10 min walk from the main Bagi Road and is one of the most visited places by many pilgrimage goers. This temple had a similar wooden and stone structure like Chehni Kothi but has now been painted colorfully by the locals. This temple gives some fascinating views of the valley and is worth a stop. Shringra Rishi temple is encompassed by natural foliage and flowers, giving it a beautiful appearance.

Raghupur Fort

Worked by the Mandi rulers, this fort is moderately damaged at present with only the external parts. A walk of 3 Km from the Jalori Pass, the last kilometer becomes extreme and secured with Greek oaks all over with a beautiful view of the Himalayas! From the top of the Fort, you can have a wide 360 degrees of the entire Kullu and Mandi region.

Sheshnag Temple

This is one of another loved deity of the Banjar region is Sheshnag. This temple is stationed a very short distance away from the Jibhi town and is much smaller and much less alarming than the Shringra Rishi temple. This temple is positioned deep in the forest and is positioned in the middle of a lush green meadow. The actual history of this temple is very much still anonymous but locals claim that this temple is more than 500 years old. There is a small concrete basketball court near this temple where local school kids come to play, which is quite an entertaining sight to see. Sheshnag temple is undeniably one of the more ambiguous places to visit in Jibhi. But for someone who wants to glance at all the things Jibhi Valley has to endeavor, it is worth a trip.

Budhi Nagin Temple

Budhi Nagin Temple is a small, ancient temple that overlooks the Serolsar Lake on the north side.

This temple is very critical and sacred to the locals so when you visit, make sure to be respectful around the lake and temple.


Chhoie Waterfall

On the road to Gushaini comes the Sai Ropa Village. A little after crossing this village is another small place called Gai Dhar. The 45 min trek to Chhoie waterfalls begins from here. It is a marginally uphill and mostly downhill trek that traverses through deep forests and canopy-covered clearings to reach the 120-meter tall fall. Just like most of the waterfalls trails in and around Jibhi, this too is an eccentric trek not known by many travelers. This waterfall formally falls under the Great Himalayan National Park ecozone and hence is untouched and pure in its beauty.

There are no specific directions to this waterfall. The cab can take you to the public school in Gai Dhar but after that, you are on your own. The trail is not exquisitely hard to find because you will see signs of treading on the soil and one solitary beige signpost that shows the way. The actual waterfall seems like a dream come true. The cool breeze from the pressure of the falls forge a dreamy, misty ambiance and the whole trek becomes fulfilling upon reaching the destination. If you visiting during the spring or the fall, this waterfall should be of your places to visit in Jibhi.
