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...

i love the place for its simplicity and nature. A dip in warm water in the springs will soothe your nerves and its said that it cures the skin diseases if any. ( The hot water and cold water from two different springs is mixed to create bath able water. Options to stay in Dharamshala at reasonable rates and Good... More

The river with hot springs was divided by 3 feet stone wall then. The spring water was then channeled to two... More

This is the ideal place to dip your body and relax. You need to be careful of the sulfur fumes.The place within the temple has an old world charm, old construction of brick and wood. The place can get very crowded, so recommend a dip around 3:00 pm.

Hot water springs are rare and must be preserved and protected by the geological dept. Most of the area above the springs is covered so that one does not get to experience the hot springs. Not only that but I think it is hazardous to cover the springs.

Hot springs in Manikaran were my first, so absolutely loved them. This place has a gurudwar and a Shiv mandir almost in conjecture. The langar for the devotees which require boiling like rice or rajma (red kidney beans) are just put in a sack, mouth tightly roped and dunked in a spring for x-mins.... The food tastes awesome i must... More

Hot spring at Manikaran is very exciting. All surroundings are very cold, hot springs of water is very excited. Within 10 minutes time, rice will be boiled when we dip into the water. If anybody is planning to visit Manali, don't miss Manikaran.
