Pattan Valley is one of the three main components of Lahaul region. It roughly includes the area between Tandi (Tandi) to Udaipur along the Chandrabhaga.
Trilokinath Temple at Tunde near Udaipur is one of the most important temples in Himachal. It is rarely visited by outsiders due to the remoteness of the Lahaul circuit but for the locals, it is a very important pilgrimage, and more importantly, it works for both Hindus and Buddhists, as it happens in many of parts of the state.
The valley around Keylong, and in fact the entire Lahaul was at its fecund best during June and July. In fact it was so fecund that I almost found it erotic. The days were long and the colours were popping out of the landscape. So, this post is not only an account of a solitary trek to Shahsur but a love letter to Lahaul.
