We stayed here at the end of our Himachal trip for 3 nights (don't stay for any less since the drive here will tire you out!) . The food is out of this world- cooked by the hosts. The home made jams, pickles and juices are free flowing and absolutely divine. The rush of the Thirthan just below your window totally relaxes you whether you are walking beside it, lazing on a rock or even sitting by your bedroom window. The hosts aren't intrusive yet work tirelessly to ensure your bed tea is in on time, your food is hot and cooked to perfection, you catch trout (even if you've been sitting for hours and haven't managed it yourself!) and your bon fire is lit in the evenings to keep you warm.

The most thrilling part is crossing the river in the little ropeway - I did that over and over again and never tired of it.

The only disappointment was not being able to visit the National Park. Don't expect to see the Himalayan National Park unless you have transport the likes of a Pajero since its 8 kms from the guesthouse and the road is supposed to be very bad. Else, there's a trout farm near by that you can visit from where the cottage gets their daily supply of absolutely mouth watering trout!

“Unspoilt location”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

This is located almost an hours drive from Aut. Very serene location. We stayed at River Side resort in the middle of Tirthan river, an excellent location. There is also Government accomodation cottages/dorms available a few hundred metres away at throwaway prices. Ideal stopover for treks to Great Himalayan National Park or a 2-3 day stay before heading to the crowded Kulu/Manali.

There is a waterfall one can trek to.

Its an awesome, excellent place in the hills. very good location, owner, friendly & hospitable owner. Raju Bharti's wife , an excellent cook & son is very friendly. The best way to get there is from Jalori Pass. Then follow the follow'g milestones - Larji Bazar, Khundan Mor, Jibhi. After Jibhi & before Banjar Rd Town, there is a steep turn like a u to Bathar. Take this turn . Then one has to follow & will get Sairopa, Nagni, Mungla & then Gushaini. One has to be careful & look for a blue colrs Jeep parked. This is the stop where one has to park & call Raju Bharti. I suppose one cannot have words to describe till he experiences Raju Guest House.
We stayed here for 3 nights.

“Tirthan Valley and Raju's Guest House”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

I have been to the Tirthan valley almost 100 times in a span of 23 years Since 1989.

The Valley and the winding roads with the crystal clear water of the Tirthan River always makes you feel refreshed. I love the drive from Aut to Gushaini and upto Jalori pass.

And one thing which has improved with each and every visit is the quality of stay and food at this little heaven, Just across the River before small hamlet of Gusaini. And the best thing is the cooking of Mrs. Bharti (Lata Ji), she will surprise you with delicacies like Morrell Mushrooms Pulao and Post Dana Chutney along with many verities of rainbow & brown trout freshly caught from the river.

And the bonfire with some drinks in the courtyard every evening is mesmerizing, specially if you have a friend/family member who can play some tunes on guitar. The freshly made pakora's and fresh finger chips keep coming.

Wish to be there again soon.
