Thatta : Hidden treasure of Seraj, Himachal Pradesh

 

I feel like I’m on top of the world. Honestly, I feel like I’ve climbed a giant mountain, and I’m just standing right on top with my arms wide open and breathing rarified .

Just the same feeling you experience once you are in Thatta, a village lying at the height of 7900 feet on top of a hill surrounded by mountains from all the sides. Thatta offers some breathtaking views of the Dahar Valley. In recent years this village has gained popularity amongst eco tourist and Hippies as it is very close to the famous Shattadhar.

How to reach?

From Delhi take a bus which is heading for Manali and get down at Aut which is around 28 Km before kullu. From Aut, you will find many buses to Thatta. The buses take a halt at Balichowki and then proceed for Thatta. After reaching Thatta you can trek all the way to Shattadhar, which is around 5 km or you can take a cab from village Thatta.I would suggest you trek all the way as it is all worth it.
