Manikaran Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Manikaran is located in the Parvarti Valley which runs N/E from Bhuntar in the Kulu district of Himachal Pradesh. It is famous for its sulpher hot springs, its numerous temples and its beautiful surroundings. The Hindus believe that 'Manu' recreated human life in Manikaran after the flood, hence the sacredness of the town and the rest of the area. Lord Shiva also had connections here with his bride Parvarti's temple located on the steep hillside (which is also a good place to view the Dio Tibba Glacier, 6001m). A good place for hikers to stay for a few days and catch their breath and get warm in one of the baths before trecking on to Lahaul & Spiti.
