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

Hike around the temple and hike the trail back to the beginning. It's about 6.55 miles out, and 13.1 miles out-and-back.

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.

Flora & Fauna

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