With your watchful eyes you will identify the trail without any problem.

Keep walking upward and this very trail will cross the Bir-Billing Road four times…but the trail is shorter than the road. This is an easy hiking trail with a little bit of steepness on final climb.

After the first and second intersection with Bir-Billing Road, the trail will cross the road third time and it is marked with a sun shelter point. From this point you will see the gate and the trail for the temple of Mata Shatvadini.
