At the top of the Churdhar Trek peak, a giant statue of Lord Shiva amazes as well as takes you back to the tales of the great Indian epics like Mahabharata and Ramayana. From Churdhar Summit, one can see views of Shimla Region, Kinner-Kailash & Shrikhand Mahadev Mountain Ranges. Churdhar Peak is surrounded by a 56 Km square forest sanctuary.

In nature, the Churdhar Trek is regarded as a moderate trek. The trail ascends to a height of over 12,000 feet. There is a significant altitude gain, from Jobra to Jwara (9,800ft to 11,000ft), which necessitates the use of very powerful lungs.
The Churdhar Trek necessitates a high level of cardiovascular endurance. And you might be considering how to strengthen your lungs? To begin, go for a jog every day. Begin jogging slowly and gradually increase your speed. As a result, cardiovascular endurance exercises are highly vital for making your lungs stronger than before.
Remember to bring appropriate clothing, remain hydrated, and stay warm to properly acclimate.
