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 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.

The place is not clean, the only thing that makes you feel good is the gurudwara and inside ambiance. Do have the food there, its good. Nothing to see otherwise.

One of the most overrated places. The place was full of dirty water with bad stench. the only thing that makes you complete the visit is the faith. Nothing to see otherwise. Too much crowd with people littering everywhere.

There is a bit of mis-management and cleanliness at Manikaran but you will feel satisfied after visit to Gurudwara and the dip in the Hot Spring..!!

Let scientists give logics ... still its a wonderful experience to see Rice and Tea made from naturally BOILING water, which is hardly 10 mtrs away from CHILLING water of river. Local market is good to shop and food too is good. Just make sure to have minimum 2:30 hours if you want to catch your bus at Guntur for... More
