Trip Duration (Including Travel): 4-6 Hours

Transportation Options: Walk/Trek

Travel Tips: None

At a distance of 8 kms from the Upper Ahobilam Temple, Ugra Sthamham is said to be the place where the Lord has appeared in the form of Narasumha. This cleft of the mountain dividing it into two visible parts can be seen from long distance. It is a popular place to visit in Ahobilam and is the toughest trek in Ahobilam.

This place has to be trekked from Upper Ahobila Temple. The path goes through think forest and the path is very narrow with deep drops by side. The duration of trekking from Upper Ahobilam temple is around 2 hours one way. This trek needs good physical strength.

No food/water is available after Upper Ahobilam, so better to carry from Upper Ahobilam itself.

Need to trek past Kroda Narasimha Temple and go straight at the diversion to Jwala Narasimha Temple (which lies on the left) to reach Ugra Stambha.
