Ghatasani-Barot Road – Enchanting drive to Barot and Beyond

Barot is a mesmerizingly beautiful village located in the serene valleys of Mandi District in the north Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. The Rising Hub Of Adventure, Barot a village, originally developed in 1920s for Shanan Hydel Project is now a tourist location … Pre Independence, Barot was also on the mule trail connecting Kullu valley to Kangra valley.

Barot Valley situated in Himachal Pradesh. It is situated 40 km from Jogindernagar and 66 km from Mandi. Barot is connected by public buses to Mandi, Jogindernagar, and Palampur. Buses plying to Kothikodh, Bada Gran and Luhardi also pass through Barot. Barot is located in Chauhar/Chuhar Valley at an altitude of 1,830 Metres or 6,001 Feet.

The route to Ghatasani was good as it was not a narrow road but after crossing Ghatasani, the roads are not that wide.. only 2 cars can pass each other that’s too not in a high speed, if a bus or truck came in between, then the other vehicle has to take back or stop somewhere from where they can cross each other.
