Chindi in Karsog Valley, is only about 100 kms from Shimla. Away from the buzzing sound of city, this small village sits quietly in the lap of nature. Packed with apple orchards and blessed with divine beauty of nature, one can also find several small temples near the village.

 

The name Karsog is derived from Kar Shok (mourning). Local folklore says, the Pandavas spent their Van Vaas in these parts. Numerous temples that dot the region dating back to about the same era, somewhat corroborate this theory.

The place is off the beaten track yet many tourists who have an urge to explore a hidden destination visit this stunning place and enjoy the glimpse of the wide Karsog Valley which lies below Chindi. This place is surrounded by Apple orchards, which looks even more beautiful during winters. Some of the important temples that you can visit during your visit to Chindi are Mamleshwara Mahadev, Kamakshya Mata, Mahunag, Ardhnarishwara, Aledi Mahadev, Palinag at Nalagali, and Churag temple.

If you want to feel the beauty of nature and peace of mind than this place is a perfect destination for you, it will revitalize your heart and mind out of its astonishing climate and terrain. Summer time in Chindi is mild and one can wear Cottons and light woollens. In winter, the sunny days give pleasant feeling. Night time is cold, therefore heavy clothing is preferred.
