Madmaheswar Trek

Madmaheswar view

When the Madmaheswar Dholi moved from Omkareswar Temple in Ukhimath to Madmaheswar, the temple officially opened to devotees in May. Since there are no roads being built to Madmaheswar, visitors must walk for 12 to 14 hours to get there. The route is surrounded by several picturesque waterfalls, streams, and other natural splendour.
