Bhima Kali Temple
View over Sarahan

Sarahan is a fairly remote mountain village in the north-west of the Shimla district, on the way into the Kinnaur district, about 7 km above the Satluj River.

Get in[edit]

There are a few direct buses to/from Shimla city but it's more practical to take any of the frequent buses between Shimla and Reckong Peo and get out in Jeori on the main road (NH 22). Jeori is connected with Sarahan by frequent local buses, taking 1 hr, cost ₹26 in Govt bus and in pvt bus ₹60

Get around[edit]
