Take a Time Out from Office Madness

Enjoy delicious local and Pahadi food

1. It is undiscovered and unspoiled
Don’t want to brave the masses who trek to Kheerganga each year? You don’t have to! Come to Rohanda, which is at a height of 7000 feet. Stay in a vintage bungalow in the midst of an apple orchard and enjoy trekking and hiking on all varieties of terrains. Be it a moderate or a challenging terrain, there is something for everyone. Enjoy the peace and quiet in the lap of nature while you give your camera a much needed workout!
2. An awesome fair at Lake Kamrunag
The Saranhauli Fair is held at the banks of Lake Kamrunag each year in June. Many locals and tourists from all different religions attend the fair, and give their offerings to the divine lake. It’s truly a spiritual experience that you need to witness.

3. You can trek from Rohanda to Kamrunag
The trek from Rohanda to Kamrunag is believed to be one of the most scenic treks in Himachal Pradesh. The trek is about 6 km long and can be covered in around 3 hours. The best part about staying at The Orchard Retreat is that there is a trail going up to the lake right in front of the bungalow. Remember to carry water bottles, energy bars and other essentials with you if you are a first-time trekker.
4. You can also trek from Kamrunag to Shikari Devi Shrine
If you want to trek to the famous Shikari Devi shrine, it is a good idea to trek from Kamrunag to Shikari Devi Shrine, rather than going back to Rohanda and starting all over again. From Kamrunag to the shrine, it is a distance of about 15 km and takes around 6 hours to complete. Experienced trekkers would find this experience invigorating, especially with the scenic views on the trek. However, first timers are not advised to undertake this journey. One tip: if you’re planning to trek all the way from Rohanda to Shikara Devi Shrine, then do star early morning so that you can return while there is still light in the sky.

5. An awesome place to call your basecamp
Earlier Rohanda was bereft of suitable accommodation options. However, now with the entry of the amazing Orchard Retreat Hotel, all your woes have come to an end. Enjoy incredible home-cooked meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner are all inclusive in the room prices) and bonfires at night if you please. The hotel will also provide you with guides to help you along the treks if you wish. Now that makes for a perfect trekking experience.
Today, we’re here to introduce to you a pristine and beautiful hill station nestled in the lap of nature in Himachal Pradesh. The best part is that this place, Rohanda, is still a secret from the touristy crowd that floods Himachal in the summers. So, you will be a pioneer when you visit and will have all the unspoiled beauty of this quaint little village to yourself. Experience the perfect balance of serenity and sight-seeing options here.

Getting to Rohanda
Rohanda is easily accessible, located 35 kms away from Sundernagar en route to Manali. At only a 5 and a half hour drive from Chandigarh, the place is convenient to reach. The nearest airport is the Kullu airport and the nearest railway station is the Shimla railway station. The best place to stay in Rohanda is a spacious, old-fashioned bungalow called ‘The Orchard Retreat’. The bungalow is in the lap of nature, surrounded by blue pin, fir, oak and cedar trees. You can rent the whole property if you are travelling as a large group.
Why Stay at The Orchard Retreat
One of the benefits of staying at the bungalow is that a guided tour of the apple orchard can be arranged for you. You can learn about the entire process of growing apples while soaking in the beauty of the place. Right in front of the bungalow is a trail that goes up to Kamrunag Lake making it a moderate trek for the trekking enthusiasts. For adventure enthusiasts, there is more to explore beyond Kamrunag as they walk towards Shikara Devi shrine (15 kms approx). The ‘Orchard Retreat’ also provides you with an accompanying guide if you so wish.
Fun Things to Do
Once you are back from a day of trekking, have a bonfire with your family or friends. You could also have those incredible guitar jamming sessions at night around a bonfire. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all included in the prices of the rooms. This is great because you won’t have to venture out every single time you feel peckish and can really rest, unwind and relax among nature at your leisure.
Rohanda- A Mini Paradise in the Hills
If you are spiritually inclined you can take a taxi from Rohanda and visit the Rewlsar Lake, which is near Mandi. This popular destination is visited by thousands of people from different religious faiths every year. While in Mandi, you can also check out its palace, the temples and a vibrant bazaar. Should you wish to get away from the madding crowd, Rohanda is only a short distance away. So, go ahead and make that enquiry now. You know you want to.
