“Easy hike to rocky outcrop with scenic views”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

A visit to Mukteshwar would be incomplete without a visit to Chauli Ki Jali.

Near the Mukteshwar temple, a trail makes its way through the trees along the edge of a steep slope, and then emerges out onto a series of rocky outcrops. On one of these can be seen a circular hole. This is Chauli Ki Jali which gives the site its name. As per local legend, women seeking to be blessed with children visit this spot on the evening of Shivaratri, and attempt to descend down through this hole. It is said that if they succeed in doing so, their wishes do indeed come true.

On any other day of the year, this is a perfect spot for a hike (we were told that during the summer, this area is also popular for rock climbing). It affords great views of the surrounding hills and valleys (Almora is clearly visible), as well as panoramic vistas of the distant snow-clad ranges of the Uttarakhand Himalayas. One can potentially spend several hours here enjoying the natural beauty and exploring the vicinity. We had to keep our visit very brief, but thoroughly enjoyed what we saw. On the way back, we ascended a side trail to the quiet and peaceful Mukteshwar temple.

“Chauli ki Jali”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

This was during our visit in May 2011. Vikram from Trishul Orchard had organised Rock Climbing, Rappling and Flying Fox here and boy was it fun!!!!!

After the adventure activities were done, we just enjoyed the nature and the lovely sunset where the colours in the sky kept on changing every minute.

“Chauli ki Jali”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Amazing view of Almora and Nainital.
One of the highest point at Mukteshwar with age old cliff.
Very popular amongst locals.As per the myth,barren women pass through this hole in the rocks and they are blessed with child on the Maha Shivratri day.There is a huge mela on this day and many such couples come to Chauli ki Jali for this reason.
Otherwise,the place is also popular amongst rock climbing/rapplelling enthusiasts,they also organise paragliding here.
