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.
