Shali Tibba hill is located near Khatnol village in Himachal at 2873 metres above sea level which is amongst the tallest peaks in Shimla district of Himachal Pradesh. The 12 km Shali Tibba trek is of easy to moderate difficulty and places such as Kufri, Shimla, Fagu, and Narkanda Hills are all visible from Shali Tibba Peak in all directions. The Shali Tibba trek is noteworthy for locals who adore the shrine in Shali Tibba mountain dedicated to the goddess Bhimakalian.
The Shali Tibba peak dominates the Shimla neighbourhood and is located just behind the Mashobra ridge. However, despite its prominence, the peak does not garner as much attention as it should. A fantastic vantage point for a panoramic 360-degree view of Himachal Pradesh is offered by this isolated hill.
The Shali Tibba trek is a nice trek through the forest that passes through several settlements. One may see what the Himalayas could have looked like if a man had left the area unspoiled by travelling through orchards.
The Shali Tibba trek package offers one of the greatest hiking trails and camping experiences with breathtaking scenery, a sight of the mountains, the forest, and the lush green valley.
