This was my second visit to this property . There is huge difference in the locational advantage. Earlier there was River near the hotel , one could walk down & enjoy river rafting . Now there is resorvior of water right next to the hotel .

Tattapani: You can see river Sutlej at Tattapani. The drive from Shimla is on the scenic road. We did river rafting here. This was the place where I felt that I did not do enough research. We negotiated a lot on the rates. The most disappointing thing is the lack of rapids in the river. In the initial stages there... More

This place is known for river rafting, but it is past news now. With the new dam in place, all the rapids are now gone. Now they take you to a place almost 36km upstream, from where the rafting of 24km starts. As the rapids have reduced, so you won't find too much excitement, only 8-10 medium levels rapids in...

Last week visited the place to start River Rafting. As being told, because of Satluj dam ahead, the water level has increased lot, so no more rapids, it looks like kids play. But good for first timer to get knack of rafting, building courage for next adventurous rapids in any other place. Hot water springs as well missing due to... More

I had visited Tattapani prior to building of dam so took for the drive from Naldhera. Drive is amazing with beautiful scenic views. But had mixed feelings once reached the town. There's a huge reservoir in place of the river now. The naturally available hot springs on banks of the river had submerged. Only option I heard about was a... More

Tasteless food, boring place, and dirty water like mud, villagers were taking bath in water taps there.. Most disappointing experience ever.. If you have any plan to visit here then cancel... More
