Exploring the Magical Tirthan Valley and Barot
Barot is a tiny village situated in the Mandi district of Himachal Pradesh. The road to Barot is scenic and offers views of terraced fields and dense cedar forest. The village also forms the gateway to the Nargu Wildlife Sanctuary. The sanctuary is home to varieties of animals such as Monal, Black Bear, Ghoral, etc.
A serene picturesque Valley in Himachal Pradesh which usually goes unnoticed because of the newly constructed tunnel which guides people to Kullu and Manali. Making Tirthan and Banjar Valley a perfect extended weekend getaway for Wravelers looking to stay away from hustle bustle of overcrowded tourist destinations.
The mountains surrounding Jibhi are lush with pine and cedar forests and it is also just one hour away from the highway connecting Manali and Chandigarh. A short drive from picturesque Jalori Pass, Jibhi is a good base for hiking, birding, relaxing, and enjoying the outdoors.
