Amazing view in winters
Excellent off-the-beaten-path location. One of the best places to practice snowshoeing . No tourist crowd. The best destination from Mandi. Try this instead of the Rewalsar Lake, everyone. Our Offbeat Vacation package was really gone adventures.

This location is extremely tranquil and serene. You might visit Prashar Temple during the weekend. Nice destination for a weekend getaway. It is completely covered in snow in the winter, lush and green in the summer. Every season gives it a new appearance. Amazing place to go camping as well. No other business can offer you services as well as they do. Offbeat Vacation truly made our weekend getaway exceptional.
