Eco-Tourism in Himachal

Eco Tourism Site of Forest Development Corporation
(Near Jalori Pass)

Recently I visited Sojha , Jalori pass, Saryulsar lake and Khanag areas of Kullu district . These are one of the most beautiful spots with scenic beauty scattered all around. These places have potential for good Eco- Tourism sites.


This place is about 70 kms from Kullu in the tranquilty of Himalayas. Here Forest Rest House is surrounded by beautiful Deodar forests and Forest Department is developing this site for Eco - Tourism.

Saryulsar Lake

It is situated around 7 km from Jalori pass at an altitude of 11000 ft . It is a religious place and water of lake is very clean and there was not even a single leaf . There is an interesting story about it that if any leaf falls in lake it is immediately picked by the birds around. So the lake water is always clean and transparent.

India is the perfect tourist destination when it comes to visiting one of its many picturesque hill stations. Famous hill stations in India like Srinagar, Gulmarg and Sonmarg in Jammu & Kashmir, Shimla and Manali in Himachal Pradesh, Mussoorie, Nainital, Dehradun and Kausani in Uttarakhand, Mount Abu in Rajasthan, Darjeeling, Gangtok and Kalimpong in East of India, and Munnar, Ooty and Kodaikanal in South of India are amongst the loveliest hill stations frequently visited by tourists for activities like relaxing, trekking and spending quality time with the family and friends.
