ABOUT

Galta Ji (Monkey Temple) Ridge Hike

Nestled in a forest in the east of Jaipur City is the revered pilgrimage site of Galta Ji. The banal sobriquet “Monkey Temple” is a moniker bestowed upon this historical site by the conventional tourism industry. The Galta Ji pilgrimage & Ashram was started by one of the most notable 16th century Hindu saints of the vaishnava tradition.

Trip PRofile

This ridge runs parallel to the Jaipur Delhi Highway, yet the peace and intrigue of this trail keeps us in a sort of a time warp away from the commotion. The trail still overlooks the “New Jaipur'' many times as we walk through the dense bush trees on a well laid cobbled path leading to the mysterious Ambagarh/ Amagarh & Kilhangarh. The geographical location keeps the wildlife away because of their fear of human interaction which is highly probable, but be ready to be surprised by monkeys, peacocks and tree pies. The mountain top Sun Temple is a very good spot for both sunsets & sunrises.

Hike takes you through a well-researched & documented trail curated exclusively for Bikepacking India guests. We take stipulated breaks at our favorite points, that includes the highest point in Jaipur. This is the ideal hike for beginners looking for a nice introduction to trekking. For experienced trekkers this is a nice way to spend time out in the open with your family & friends. You can either take a cab to the starting point or book a transfer with us. ​
