The name Tattapani literally means “hot water” and it is no surprise that it is famous for its hot springs.
So, if you are looking to dip into some hot, bubbly water while enjoying scenic views of the Sutlej river, this is the place to be. In fact, locals believe that the Sulphur-rich water has healing properties that can cure various skin ailments and joint pains.
Besides the hot springs, Tattapani offers a wide range of adventure sports for thrill-seekers. Whether it’s trekking, camping, mountain biking, river rafting or fishing, you name it, they have it. And if you are a religious person, you can always visit the Mahunag Temple in Karsog or go trekking to the Shalli Peak to seek blessings from the mighty Goddess Kali.
Tattapani is situated at an altitude of 2230 feet above sea level and offers a moderate climate throughout the year. However, the best time to visit is during summers and winters. And if you are wondering how far it is from Shimla or Auramah Valley, well, it’s just a short drive of 51 and 38 kms respectively.
So, pack your bags, grab your swimsuit and head to Tattapani for a perfect blend of adventure, relaxation and natural beauty. Who knows, you might just return with a glowing skin and a rejuvenated body!
