Majathal Sanctuary is an interesting sanctuary

Majhathal Sanctuary is a gorgeous sanctuary basedd in Shimla and Solan Districts of Himachal Pradesh. It is located about 10 km Karaghat (Shimla-Bilaspur Highway) to Kashlog. From Kashlog you have to hoof to reach the destination. It is situated at an altitude of 900 to 1,966 m above sea level. The total area of this sanctuary covers 39.4 sq km. It was established in 1962 (first notified) and March (1974 re-notified). 

This sanctuary is considered as ideal spot for the trekkers and leisure backpackers. This sanctuary is spreading across very steep and rugged Himalayan terrains, away from habitation of Himachal Pradesh, which shelters rare breeds like Gorals and Cheer Pheasants. You can catch them with your unhindered and breeding in their natural habitat. Arrangements can be done there for tent accommodation for visitors. This could be a great opportunity to stay and experience the thrill within the wildlife neighborhood.
The forest inherits the dry temperate type of the Himalayas. It covers the lower elevations of the west Himalayan region. 

The temperature here ranges from 1 to 29 degree centigrade. So you can visit this sanctuary any time of the year. But during the period of July to September, i.e. the monsoon season it rains up to 1040 millimeters. So try to avoid this period to evade chances of getting stuck because of landsides. The best time recommended to come to this place is winter
