Sutlej Trail Tourist Circuit (approx. Time: 3 Days)

Last Updated:08 May 2009
Sutlej Trail Tourist Circuit (approx. Time: 3 Days)
Swarghat – Bilaspur - Deothsidh

Swarghat on the Chandigarh- Manali highway is the starting point of the Sutlej Trail tourist circuit. Swarghat was a summer retreat of the erstwhile royal family of Bilaspur. It offers commanding views of the plains. Swarghat is 90 km away from Chandigarh through Ropar and Kiratpur. Bilaspur, the next destination of the Sutlej Trail is about 135 km from Chandigarh. The town happens to be the first planned hill town in the country. The town is on the banks of the Sutlej. Receding waters of Gobind Sagar Lake in winters dramatically give rise to Shikaras of the submerged temples, which link the new lakeside township with an historical one that was submerged when a dam was built on the Sutlej.

Gobind Sagar in Bilaspur is one of the largest artificial lakes in the country. The lake has become a popular water sport and fishing centre. A branch of Institute of Mountaineering and Allied Sports in Bilaspur provides training in many water sports like water skiing, rowing, sailing and kayaking. Deothsidh is 37 km from Bilaspur and about 45 km from Hamirpur. The town is also a link-up destination to the popular pilgrimage circuit of Jawalamukhi – Brajeshwari and Chintpurni through Hamirpur. Deothsidh is the cave temple shrine on the Dhaulagiri hill where a scared fire has been constantly burning for over five centuries. Deothsidh means ‘light of truth’ and the shrine is dedicated to the child saint Baba Balaknath.
