Things to see & do

Serolsar Lake

A beautiful 5-6 hr return hike from Jalori Pass through a dense Oak forest.


Raghupur Fort Meadows

Another interesting walk from Jalori Pass on a trail through forests of Oak & Rhododendron which opens out into a vast meadow that ends on a small verdant plateau with the ruins of an ancient fort.  The spot offers panoramic views of the valleys with the Dhauladhars & Pir Panjal ranges in the back drop.


Waterfall Point

An hour’s walk through a thick Himalayan forest, this is best done on the day of your arrival to help acclimatize to the rarefied atmosphere. Of course, it is also the perfect early morning walk on any day.


Tirthan Valley

The Tirthan Valley is about 30 kms from Sojha. The Tirthan River which gushes through this valley is great for Trout Fishing.


Great Himalayan National Park

A little ahead of Tirthan valley is The Great Himalayan National Park. You can enjoy a day hike in the park and cap it off with an unforgettable overnight camping experience.



Fly fishing is possible on certain sections of the Tirthan River during specified times in the year.  You will need to get your own gear and permits are needed, we can take care of this but you’d need to let us know well in advance.
