- Carry extra food and supplies with you, facilities are not present at proper intervals.- Winters are excruciatingly cold, so avoid visiting in winters especially in January when temperature drops to -37 deg C.- Make sure you have enough information beforehand of wherever you go sightseeing or have a guide with you.

Holidify's Opinion

  What's Great?

A tranquil tourist hotspot in Himachal. Heaven for solitude lovers.

  What's not so Great?

Slightly difficult to access as the nearest airport and railway station is more than 200 km away. One of the coldest places in India.

For Whom

Earmarked for lovers of peace and solitude. Also suitable for camping backpackers from places like Shimla, Kasauli, Manali etc.
