Supa Deurali Temple

Don’t glance down at your phone on the Supa Deurali Temple road

Located in the Arghakhanchi District, in the western part of Nepal, the Supa Deurali is a mountain temple at an elevation of 1.509m (4,950ft) above the sea level.

The road to the temple is called Gorusinge-Sandhikharka road. The road is paved but it’s difficult and it’s a nightmare in the wet or dark (or both). There is little room for error on this road. Don’t stuff your belly too much. Eventually, you might feel vomiting temptations while climbing circuitous roads at higher altitudes. The road has asphalt and gravel surface and links Gorusinge, at an elevation of 128m above the sea level, and Sandhikharka, at 965m. Words can’t describe the road and pictures don’t do it justice. It’s obstructed periodically due to landslides triggered by incessant rainfalls.

In many places the road is bordered by a drop of hundreds of meters (many hundreds of feet) unprotected by guardrails.  The drive offers panoramic views along the road. Near the temple the road is extremely dangerous with a high number of accidents. It’s said to be the most dangerous part of this narrow road.
