    Places to visit near Mandi Town

    Parashar Lake

    Just 33 km from IIT Mandi Kamand campus, Prashar lake at an altitude of ~ 8500 ft, and surrounded by mountains, meadows, gives an awe-inspiring panorama of the Himalayas. There is a pagoda style three tiered temple of Prashar at the bank of lake. It makes for an excellent leisurely day-tour destination.

    Barot Valley

    On the banks of the Uhl river, Barot is a relatively less explored, niche and a great backpacker and day-tour destination, about 68 km away from IIT Mandi Kamand campus. Many walking and trekking trails pass through Barot. It is among the hidden treasures of Himachal because of which not much people know about it. The place is situated in valley sorrounded by thick deodar and oak forest. The sweet silence of the woods here engross the visitors.


    Rewalsar Lake is place of spiritual importance, situated at 44 km from IIT Mandi Kamand campus. There is a Buddhist monastry and some other Buddhist temples in Rewalsar, on hills sorrounding the lake. These are visited by several Buddhists, especially on the Tibetan New Year, thus making Rewalsar into a mini Buddhist colony. About 10 km from Rewalsar is situated the temple of Naina Devi, the approach to which is loaded with scenic views of the sorrounding hills and smaller lakes.

    Pandoh dam and Hanogi Temple

    The Pandoh Dam is an embankment dam on the Beas River in Mandi district, on the way to Kullu. It is good transit spot to enjoy Beas river in its splendour serpentining among the sorrounding hills. A little further from Pandoh is the temple of Hanogi Mata on the Beas Banks, which is very popular among the locals.
