about kalatop wildlife sanctuary

Kalatop, a hilltop dedicated to Lord Shiva, boasts of a grand view of the Pir Panjal Range. The hilltop falls in the Kalatop Wildlife Sanctuary, whose altitude varies between 1,460-2,750 m. The sanctuary was notified in the 1970s to protect what was once a gaming reserve of the Chamba royals. There are no guided tours and visits are restricted to the Kalatop Peak. Most visitors treat the place as a local picnic spot.

To avoid the crowds, take the 2-km path to Kalatop Peak. Most of the park’s steep terrain consists of dense coniferous and oak forest with the upper reaches rich in deodars. The wildlife here includes bear, leopard and the shy ghoral. Kalatop is an open forest, which means that the animals move in and out of it depending on the season.
