This trip has everything. Like ancient temples of great archaeological importance dating back to 6th ,8th , 10th and 12th century , life styles of semi nomadic Gaddi shepherds , spectacular views of mountain peaks , terraced fields with tiny villages clinging to the sheer valley , thrills of driving along Ravi River and trekking along water springs and through thick deodar forest. Sacred Manimahesh lake is located 35 kms from Bharmour , the capital of erstwhile State of Chamba state between 6th – 10th centuries. This is home of the semi nomadic Gaddi tribe who spend the summer on alpine pastures grazing their sheep and goats.
