Bhadraj temple-

Bhadraj is situated at the extreme western end region of Mussoorie. The trekking trail of Bhadraj forest and temple leads you through densely forested northern slopes and the southern slopes covered with barren grasslands. You pass through extremely contrasting terrains. On one side the majestic Himalaya treks overlooks the trail, and on the other side Indian plains emerges.

The feature which makes this trek unique and extra- ordinary is that there is a peculiar contrast between the northern slopes which are thickly forested and the southern slopes having grasslands which are completely exposed. It seems as if a straight line is drawn down the dividing ridge. Though a little weird, the contrasting shades of green give a beautiful scene. Here, the geological and climatic factors are beautifully knitted together.
