    Pravin's 4 days trip to Solan

    Overall trip was great. Nice weather, nice spots. A bit costly all the things at solang valley. Not worth as compared to time given for activities. Manali hotel overall is good place for living. Propmt service. Only things they can add is adding varieties in daily dinner and breakfast. Kasol hotel was not good. Heater provided with extra charges was not even ok. Its waste of money. Food also was not good. Driver was good at driving. But at starting he was not enthusiastic for showing different places or not even same places which was mentioned in trip details. Expecting other places or options if any of the place is closed or not reachable. Solang valley - only place with snow. Kasol - Manikarn -mesmerizing view. Manali street mall.

    FAQ's of Solan

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    There is no problem related to water availability during your stay near the Jatoli temple due to the rivulet called the Ashwani Khadd that flows continuously throughout the year. The small river is the source of water in the majority of parts in Solan. So, there has been no water shortage reported until now in living accommodations near the Jatoli temple.

    No, the temple is not crowded during weekends. The temple has devotees coming for praise and worship during the festival season in Mahashivratri. If you visit the temple during the festival season, do not miss out on the processions and proceedings that take place during festivals is astounding and will leave you wide-eyed.
