   Barot : A Slvan Retreat

The road to Broat branches off at Jogindernagar-Mandi high ways and from Jogindernagar the distance is 40 km. If one is lucky enough one can use the trolley up from Jogindernagar which, apart from the thrill, knocks the distance down to 12 km. Through terraced fields and thick cedar forests, the track rises to Jhatingri, an enchanting spot atop the hill.

The remains of the summer palace of the former rulers of Mandi are located here.

Through the little village of Tikkan, the road carries on to Barot. And here, in a neat little package, is an enormous range of outdoor activities. For a start there is a            troutbreeding centre from where fish are released into the Uhl and there is a 30 km section of the river which is excellent for angling.

Barot also forms the gateway to the Nargu Wildlife Sanctuary which lies across the Uhl. The sanctuary is home to the monal, black bear and ghoral. Within it are forest rest house s at Thaltuckhod and Silbandhwari. Through woods of cedar and pine a trek route cuts across the sanctuary to Kullu.

Known only to a select band of angling aficionados and some intrepid trekkers, Barot has all the wonderful views , wildlife, adventure- and even the option of solitude - poured into a small but satisfying dish.
