Girnar mountain is older mountain then the himalaya. It has a total 9999 steps which is a miracle itself. When you see from right direction Girnar hill is a human face structure that made itself a miracle.

At the behest of a family friend we planned our visit to Girnar parbat. We started at exact 0000 hours from Somnath in the middle of the night since the climb must start in the wee hours before sunset. The journey from Somnath to Girnar parbat is around 100 kms. The roads excellent and safe to travel unlike few places... More

A visit to the Girnar hill temples would be a thrilling experience, provided you are physically fit, had proper rest and have enough devotion to complete the climb. An early morning (before 0400) start is advised because it takes almost 6 to 8 hours of walking to reach the datta treya temple and back. Dattatreya temple is the place where... More

Met some lovely people on the way up and down. #1 make sure you have plenty of with you, as you will see many people who requires water and last thing you want is not help or run out of water yourself. I drank bottles up and down. Good luck and hope you enjoy it much as i did.

Great place. Lot of Ashrams at the base of the mountain. Some say this mountain is even older than the Himalaya. It is quiet and with lot of options to eat. The locations to stay around this place are not great, but most of the travellers just stay one night before/after the climb.

Giranrji is amongst the highest mountain peaks to pray for Jains and further up to the Shiv mandir. The intricate architectural detail provide for a visual setting with the smoky white clouds serving as a perfect backdrop. Must visit place in Junagadh.

Girnarji is a group of Jain temples established at the 3300th step mark from the base (girnar taleti) that lies off the city of Junagadh in southern gujarat. The climb is stiff, typically one starts before sunrise - about five am is adequate though you could start much earlier as the entire path is lit and there are steps and... More

Any trip to Junagad or Sasan Gir is incomplete without a visit to Girnar Hills Temple. There are Jain Temples, Amba Mata Temple, Dattatraya Temple and Gorakhnath Temple. So one can imagine the how divine the Mountain would be. When one starts climbing at 4000 steps there is Neminath Temple, at 6000 steps one would find Amba Mata Temple, at... More

The climb took us about 2.5 hours on foot. Tiring a bit, but verrry satisfying. the coolness of the air as you move up was something that made the climb worth all the pain. From the first tonk, we went to the other temple, which is a bit off the main route, about 1200 steps down. From there you can... More
