"Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions. " ~ Dalai Lama


Rohanda, Himachal Pradesh

This quaint little village set amidst the orchards is located in one of the most beautiful, unspoilt and easily accessible places in Himachal Pradesh. At an altitude of 7000ft, it is situated in sylvan surroundings with cedar, blue pine, fir and oak trees all-around that offer enchanting walks within the forest. The place lends itself to good drives thanks to the gentle rolling hills all-around.

Rohanda is surrounded by some very fascinating places. A trek through the forests to Kamru Nag, a local deity, located at 9600ft. is an experience by itself. Every year on 14-15 June, a fair is attended by thousands of people and offerings are converted to gold and silver and immersed in the lake.

A 15 km. trek to Shikari Devi via Kamru Nag is for the true enthusiasts.
