Need to Know

I don't know of any bathroom access along the trail. The hathipaon road will have space to park a few vehicles on the side, but space is limited.

Runner Notes

La Ultra runs a 11k, half marathon, and full marathon race here once a year each October.

Description

The trail begins by following the road from Haathi Paon along the concrete road towards Clouds End. You'll run through some rolling small hills and rises until you reach a ridge that will begin the descent into the Dudhli Valley. You'll run down a steep gradient of long winding switchbacks before leveling out as you run past the village.

It's all uphill from here. You'll run past the Durga Devi Mandir temple and hang a left at any forks in the road. Trudge up the seemingly never-ending short switchbacks until you reach a flatter section of the trail that is very rocky. Up until this point, most of the trail is either concrete or paved in some regard, but this last section is not. You'll climb up two more short gradual rises before reaching the Bhadraraj Temple! Run around the temple and run the trail back to the beginning. It's about 6.55 miles out, and 13.1 miles out-and-back.

Flora & Fauna

The occasional cow, goat, and dog. Beware of monkeys.
