It was pouring that day , but the drive was beautiful. in certain parts the road is not in good shape. we stopped for lunch at Sanjha Chulha - great view and food - though on the expensive side. on reaching manikaran we...

This is in the Gurudwara. If you arent interested in Gurudwara and been to Vasist Kund, dont go here.

We had been to Manikaran from Manali. It almost takes a day of yours to go and come back to Manali. So, unless you have ample time, it is not a very good idea to spend a day for it. Also, if you are taking bath at the hot springs, please be careful. Don't dip in the water for a... More

It was amazing to see the hot water pond. However, I did not liked that the local people were boiling eggs and potatoes in it which is against the rituals since it is Hindu pilgrims

Undoubtedly the hot springs here is a beautiful attraction and it justifies your visit. Gurudwara sahib is a peaceful sight where you can sit and listen the shabad kirtan. Manikaran complex includes Gurudwara, Hot springs , Raghunath temple, Shiva temple, Naina Devi temple and more. But the area is so congested like any old city..unplanned construction, narrow pathway, markets. The... More

There is nothing to visit. 3hrs journey from the city and roads are not in good condition.. local buses were too rough. After 3 hrs drive you will find a small pool in a room with extremely hot water also you can not enjoy a bath properly as there was no proper arrangement. So for what you want to go... More

We visited Manikaran for one day, arriving from Manali and then returning to Kullu for night sleep. Very nice place, interesting hot water spring, Hindu temple along side a Sikh Gurudwara. Pay attention the water is indeed very HOT. The way to Manikaran, along the Parbati river, is beautiful and one of the reasons to visit the place. Several nice... More

The temple is a small place, it ends before it begins. Ladies and Gents bathing area are seperate, but top view is open. All the local women come to wash their clothes, children and have their daily bath, so there is no room for tourist. The sight is horrible. The steps are slippery because of all the soap and I...
