Places to visit

Vashist Springs: About a half hour's brisk walk from the town, sulphur springs gush forth from the mountains at Vashisht. These springs, known as Vashist springs, are medicinal and offer one a relaxing experience. Here, in a bath complex with a restaurant and a beautiful view, couples can soak in the privacy of their own sunken bath.

Jagatsukh: It is one of the biggest villages in Kullu district. About 6-km from Manali, Jagatsukh is famous for its Shiva temple built in "shikara" style. Close by is the ancient Devi Sharvati temple.

Arjun Gufa: On the left bank of the Beas, 5 kms from Manali near the village of Prini, is the 'Arjun Gufa' or the cave of Arjuna. It is believed that Arjuna practiced austerities to get Pashupata Ashtra, the weapon of Lord Indra, in this cave.

Beas Kund: Further ahead the Gufa is the Beas Kund. The tiny roundish igloo like stone hut shelters the Beas Kund, the source of the river Beas. The icy cold and crystal clear water flows at the source of the river like a spring. The terrain around Beas Kund is rocky with little vegetation.

Rohtang Pass: 50 kms from Manali town, at an altitude of 4,111 mtrs, lies the Rohtang pass on the highway to Keylong. The pristine Dasohar Lake is to left of the Pass. The Pass, which is the only access to the Lahaul Valley, is open from June to November each year. However, unforecast snowfall and blizzards can close the Pass even during this period. Rohtang presents the majesty of the mountains in their glory and splendor. Nearby the pass is the Sonapani glacier and slightly to the left are the twin peaks of Gaypan – a jagged rocky pyramid covered in snow.

The Kullu Valley: Sandwiched between the Dhaula Dhar and the Pir Panjal ranges of Himalayas, lies the beautiful valley of Kullu. It invites the tourists to its natural grandeur with its mountain slopes, the cascading waterwalls and the snow covered peaks.

The Kullu Temples: Besides the natural beauty of the land, Kullu also has great temples that one can visit. Some of the most famous temples are Raghunath Temple, Jagannath Devi Temple and the Hadimba Temple.
