its a beautiful location accessible by foot (trekking of course) and by road till the bottom of the steps. one gets to see beautiful snow capped mountains during the drive.the mandir is at the top of the hill and one has to climb a humongous number of steps(400 stairs) to reach there, so lazy lots can take it slow and easy -rest in between if you like. The view at the top is beautiful and worth the climb-- green meadow-like openness all around. The mandir itself is very small, clean and simple- there is no roof overhead - saying goes that Mata does not like any shelter- she destroys any overhead structure anybody tries to build for her;saying also goes that she grants any desire you ask of her. so go ahead and ask for peace- yours and for the world!!! it is located in Mandi dist; can be accessed via Chindi - Jhanjheli ( that side has a very very bad road experience- we have tried it) try going to Jhanjheli via Mandi, Sundernagar.There is a Forest guesthouse near the Mandir, but it is rather remote, so be prepared to rough it out- food-wise and basic amenity- wise. I am bad at numerical data- distance, altitude, etc so check up before you go. Definitely avoid in the winter snow- i think it gets snow locked for months.
Some accommodation can be found nearby-- there is a beautiful village at the starting of the tour. One can get place to stay at Jhanjheli which is a beautiful n cute not very populated village some distance - more than 20 kms from the bottom of the hill of the mandir. There is a PWD guest house there one can try for and such government resthouses. also,some basic private guest houses are there. Enjoy our Himachal responsibly please- people really need to be more sensitive to the beauty and ecology of the hills -do visit if you truly like the hills.
