Mysterious Himachal

Land of God & Faith

Bagha Sarhan – Mini Khajjiar

Baga Sarahan is a historic meadow located in the Sarahan Village of Kullu Nirmand Tehsil in Kullu district of Himachal Pradesh. A wonderful village in a lush green valley in the middle of snow-covered hills. The village has a beautiful temple in the middle. Baga Sarahan is 170 km away toward north from capital Shimla and 30 Kms from Nirmand &  approximately 45 Kms picturesque drive from Rampur, in Shimla district in Himachal Pradesh, will bring you to a beautiful little hamlet called Baga Sarahan.  Baga Sarahan is surrounded with unconfined, draping meadows bordered with deep forests on one end while traditional Kathkuhni houses and apple orchards on the other.

Baga Sarahan has got its main road leading right into the meadow. It is well connected however there are simpler and fewer public transport options. From Shimla – drive to Rampur (120kms), take the Nirmand-Bagi-pul route to a village called Baga Sarahan. Baga Sarahan is around 50 km from Rampur Bushahr. 

Bagha Sarahan falls into the Seraj region of Himalaya. The word “Seraj” (सिराज) in Urdu means the Sun or a plume of Light. Basically, a Lamp. Seraj is a territorial region constituting the Outer and Inner Seraj in the Kullu District. The passes of Jalori and Bashleu separate these regions, even though the locals are related on both sides.

Places to visit:

Rishi Jalandi, who arose from water (Jal) in Mansarovar. Hence the name – Jal Andi, risen from water.

You can also visit a waterfall, which is a short hike away from the campsite and offers a divine view of the valley. You can spend half a day enjoying the sounds and sights and have a picnic lunch at the waterfall.

The adventurous folks also have an option to Trek to Bashleo Pass which is at a 6 Kms incline from close to the campsite. The walk is through the meadows, farms, a pine forest and it finally opens to flowing meadows at about 3277 meters above sea level. After a short nap in the flowing meadows, you can descend downwards for a relaxing evening at the campsite.
