Shojha Tourism

An undiscovered place of sorts, Shojha is a very small village located right in the middle of the Himalayan mountain range and the wilderness of the forest around. Not many people have set foot in this small village and hence it still is able to maintain its beauty and view. Shojha was featured in a very famous Bollywood movie, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. It is a must visit for people who love trekking. At a distance of 5 km, the Jalori Pass is indeed a tricky trail to trek. Giving the most extraordinary view of snow-capped mountains at the end of this trek, the Jalori Pass can get extremely dangerous. Although, with the correct trainer and trekking skills, one can get pass through this trail and bask into the purest air of the top of the range. The weather around Jalori Pass is always pleasant. The area is filled with deodar forest and makes it easy to avoid the sun at its peak hours. With the dense forest on one side and the snow-capped mountain range on the other, the trek to Jalori Pass becomes very scenic. At night, the moonlight flashes on top of the hill and makes the snow look like a layer of silver on top of the Himalayan mountain range. There are many other tourist spots such as the fort, village and a lake that will always keep them engaged.
