The Kapilash experience

If you get kicks out of completing challenges that most people think you can never conquer, the Kapilash temple is the right place to go. Located around 40 kilometers from the quite village of Deulasahi in Dhenkanal, Kapilash is one the hottest tourism destinations in the state of Odisha.

At the entrance point of the temple complex you can barely understand the exact height of the hill on top of which the temple is located. Once inside, it’s a one kilometre walk to the foot of the hill from which the stairs to the temple start. A tiny yet squeaky clean temple dedicated to the Hindu goddess in cow form marks the beginning of your journey upwards. A number of visitors turn down the challenge and only pay their respects to the last couple of steps at the bottom.

There is also an alternative path to the temple going around the entire hill. This is a 4 kilometre journey that can be traversed by car. The journey through the forests and perpendicular to the base of the hill is the one most tourists and locals fear to take. It is the one containing 1500+ steps.

Stairs of kapilash temple

The right way to climb these stairs is to go slow and rest after every 150-200 steps for maximum 5 minutes. It is also advisable to wear light cotton clothes and carry glucose water that can provide the energy boosts required. Since most tourists prefer the location during winters, the Kapilash trek can treat your eyes to some of the most astounding sceneries you can imagine. An interesting aspect of the trek is that there are no recommended stops or spots from where the view of the other mountains is beautiful, it is rather a continuous process of discovery. In fact it is possible at Kapilash that you might have experienced a view that no other tourist ever has.

There are several stories of Kapilash in Indian mythology and when you walk up these dark stone steps through the dense forest cover you can only wonder how life was hundreds of years ago.

Watch this space for more stories on Kapilash and the beautiful Dhenkanal.

The magic of Dhenkanal

Dhenkanal is a quiet little town in the middle of nowhere, Odisha. Surrounded by little hills that are small enough to tempt you to climb them and large enough for you to spend hours staring at them, Dhenkanal has the charm of the medieval times. Interestingly however in a location where constructions are so far and few between, the region has excellent roads that ensures a constant tourist flow. There are several places to see around the region and one of the biggest highlights is the mysterious and famed Kapilash temple, located on the top of a hill that you have to climb more than 1500 steps to reach.

Beauty of dhenkanal

In spite of the sparse population and an extremely laid back nature to the district, Dhenkanal has some of the best colleges in Odisha and in fact, India. The IIMC (Indian Institute of Mass Communication) is one such example.

The right time to visit Dhenkanal is during the Laxmi Puja in October when the entire town comes alive. Unlike the carnival during Durga Puja in the neighbouring state of Bengal, Odisha has a much longer and sustained celebration during Laxmi Puja that goes on over two weeks. Families and communities come together to celebrate this event and you can understand the spirit of the festival weeks ahead when the frequency of guests coming over for chit chat increases.

Dhenkanal also boasts of an extended market place that sells everything one can imagine available in a metro. For people looking to collect authentic Odiya artefacts, sample the most genuine Odiya cuisine or experience the true culture of the state, Dhenkanal is the place to be.
