Shrikhand Mahadev, as localites used to say, is one of the adobes of Lord Shiva, who resides there. They worship the natural, rock-made shivalingam on the great heights of mountains. The shivalingam is 75 feets high and stands still at the mountain top, above 18,000 ft altitude. One has to go through many gorgeous, ravines, and beautiful valleys.
