Jayanti Trek: Underrated Trek, Chandigarh
Jayanti Trek: Underrated Trek, Chandigarh
This trek was done by “Aditya and the Crew”. As described in my previous post about Jayanti Devi Temple located only a few kilometres (11 km) away from Chandigarh, this trek is followed by the temple site.
This trek is yet unexplored and the Jayanti Majri Village is also underrated but once you visit this place would come over again and again…TRUST ME! We did it already many times during our stay in Chandigarh.
It is the perfect destination to kick off city’s crowd and to spend some quality time with nature in peace. And the plus point is …it is not so far away from the city. What else an explorer wants!
Trekking Adventure Story:
To explore the wilderness and natural surroundings of Jayanti Majri village, the group (Trekkers) mentioned above took this trek early in the morning. After visiting the temple, the crew headed towards the trek.
On the way, they saw “white paw buddy”, swimming. It just mesmerized all of them (trekkers). They never saw a dog swimming so confidently, gave an impression of the perfect swimmer.
Surprise Trekking Partner
So, that was not the ONLY description about the dog fellow. He looked curious and followed the trekkers. At starting it seemed he would be gone off soon. But to their surprise, he kept following and imitating their exploration.
Carry essential backpack for trekking:
Reaching the hilltop
The trekkers covered the whole trek in around 2-3 hours. This trek was not done in hurry. They keep treating themselves with jokes and laughter including some breaks to enjoy the moments in the wilderness. And their dog buddy also accompanied them as if enjoyed their company. Whole crew with surprise trekking partner reached the hilltop of Jayanti. The view from there was breathtaking and refreshing.
Go trekking with the right pair of footwear
One can see Jayanti Devi Temple and Jayanti Dam from the hilltop at a distant sight.
After spending some soul healing time and had some of the beautiful camera clicks, the crew came back. This trek was done early in the morning without breakfast. After that much morning hiking, soul-feeding adventure it was the time for a heavy breakfast to feed stomach also. 🙂
Don't forget to keep a good camera with you:

I have a place called farAway Greens near by. It has a private trek and is a good place for picnic, bonfire, bird watching and camping. All trekers are welcome.
this is a delightful insight you have there!
You could create interest in any topic! Bravo!
An interesting track. I have been hiking the north of Europe for too long. Kinda thinking that I should try different landscapes… but I am in love with the north.
Yes, truly. Always try to explore different treks is in our interest too.
You know I never connected Chandigarh with treks until now that it. Your post has given a new perspective to the city. Jayanti Trek sounds amazing and you are right in calling it underrated as not much is spoken about it. When in the city next, would love to explore this. Happy that your are spreading the word! Loved your surprise trekking partner!
That’s true Navita. This trek is still underrated and the city beautiful is not known for trekking site too. But being an explorer we always try to discover new places among the popular ones. 🙂
I have travelled to Chandigarh many times but never heard about Jayanti trek earlier. This looks a nice place to trek and also added this place in my list to visit here when I visit Chandigarh next time.
Sure, Rahat. You will never regret your visit to this place. Hope you would visit soon.
Have spent a large part of my time near Chandigarh. Have been to this city so many times yet no one told me about this hiking point. It sounds seriously underrated and I can only imagine how gorgeous it would look in the monsoons.
Truly underrated trek indeed. We have known many people who belong to Chandigarh but never heard of this trek. It was just out of curiosity to explore hidden places we managed to discover this place. 🙂
love this post – I’ve never been to Chandigarh but reading your blog makes me want to go!
Thanks, Utsav 🙂 Yeah, Chandigarh is the beautiful city and one must visit.

This sounds like an absolutely great hike! It look off the beaten track and that is exactly what I like as well!
Yeah, off-the-beaten treks are always worth exploring. 🙂
Looks like an amazing trek, how lucky you are to do this walk and how lucky we are that you choose to share it
Thanks, Nadine. Glad you liked it 🙂
You are really adventurous . Going around looking for places with nature like this to share with the world.
Thanks for the beautiful words. 🙂
It looks like a really unfairly underrated route 🙂 I often choose these too 🙂
True, Marta. But people who admire the beauty of nature would surely able to locate such places. Even though these places are not so much popular. It is like a beauty in disguise. 🙂
