Due the the dam constructed on satluj river, the natural hot water spring is now submerged under river water. But the near by hotel, "Hotel hot spring" has connected that hot spring direct into their pool. So if u want to have a bath in sulphar water, u can go to that hotel. They charges Rs 350 per person.

Used to be hot springs near river satluj. Recently the river became a lake because of Kol dam hydel power project. The view has drastically improved. The still water lake looks too good at this place.

There are around 10 persons on that inflatable raft, and it started off around 1 p.m. in the afternoon. By then, the river had swollen considerably... More

Sutlej River flows here and there is lot of sulphur present. The stones, pebbles and the sand around the river are hot while the river water is cold. The current of the river was high when i went. If you are interested you can collect some unique stones and pebbles around the river of various shapes sizes and colour.
