Ganji Pahari, Dalhousie Overview
Ganji Pahari is a scenic hill located at a distance of 5 kilometres from the town of Dalhousie on Pathankot Road. The name Ganji Pahari was derived from its salient feature which is the complete absence of flora on the hill -'Ganji' meaning Bald in the local language, and 'Pahari' meaning Hill. The natural landscape makes it an exciting trekking trail. Its accessibility also makes Ganji Pahari a favourite picnic spot in Dalhousie. During winters, the same terrain is covered in a thick coat of snow, and the panoramic view it offers is just breathtaking.
A tour to Ganji Pahari can also be accompanied by a guide whom tourists can hire from Dalhousie. It is one of the best ways to explore the site through the correct route instead of wandering around clueless unless that's the kind of adventure one is seeking. The brilliant colours reflecting from the landscape surrounding the hill is a mesmerising site at any time of the day, but the misty sunsets and sunrises are the best features to see from Ganji Pahari. The location is perfect to explore with family and friends and bond over the trip. The picturesque site of Ganji Pahari is worth capturing in photographs too.
Ganji Pahari Trek
The trek to Ganji Pahari begins from Dalhousie and the trekkers walk through the town before taking the route to Panchpula. At a point in Panchpula, the trekking trail goes through a rugged and uneven route till the top of the hill. This climb is about 6 kilometres and offers a beautiful view of the natural landscape that surrounds Ganji Pahari. Trekkers pass through some village homes located on the slopes.
One can choose to camp on Ganji Pahari or enjoy the view and descend back to the town the same day. If one wishes to camp, they can get some delicious homemade food for dinner from the village nearby. If trekking with an adventure company, they usually arrange the dinner. Trekkers can have a splendid bonfire and a quiet session of night sky gazing before they doze off. After the overnight camp, the next day, trekkers can take the same route back to Dalhousie or proceed to Dainkund.
Best Time to Visit
The best time to visit Ganji Pahari is between October and February. It is winter season during these months, the region receives a good amount of snowfall every year, and the mountain peaks are all covered in a white blanket of snow. For those who do not wish to camp on the hill, it is highly recommended to reach Ganji Pahari in the first half of the day. This will ensure tourists have enough daylight to trek through, capture memories and return to Dalhousie the same day.

A Sach pass road trip had been on the cards for a long time before it went on to become a reality. Finally, after planning and canceling a few times, we finalized a short trip crossing Sach pass and visiting the Lower Lahaul valleys of Pangi and Miyar. The idea was to drive from Delhi to Khajjiar and Kalatop and continue to Udaipur, Killar, Pangi Valley, Miyar Valley from there. The only logistical issue remained a wedding ceremony that had to be attended the night before our scheduled departure date, which obviously was worked out.
