This half day hike takes you through villages to a temple where local people come to make their wishes. 

For those who do not want o walk, it is possible to reach the temple by road, taking about an hour.  On the top of the hill, from the temple you can see the magnificent panorama of Mt. Machhapuchhre, Mt. Annapurna and Mt. Dhaulagiri.

Built by Pratam Samser Rana, Bhairav Temple is a popular pilgrimage site. It has what is believed to be the largest ‘Trishul’- a symbol of God Shiva, in Asia and during the main Dashain festival of Hindus; people come here to worship the god ‘Bhairav.’ The main statue of Lord Bhairav is hidden as it is so frightening. It is said that anyone catching a glimpse of this statue is in danger of losing their life. The priest worships the statue from behind a curtain. There's a copy of the main statue which people can see and worship.

Apart from Dashain, throughout the year people come to worship here on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Many pilgrims also come in the month of Mangsir (Nov-Dec) and the busiest day here is the day of Maha Ashtami of Navaratra.
