Barot takes you to that 'Once upon a time' era. Yes, there is a river Uhl, there is a wildlife sanctuary The Nargu wildlife sanctuary, there are awesome trails (bike and hike!) there is trout fish but then There is Barot. Way back in the British times the river Uhl was harnessed for its hydel generation. There is a winch trolley which used to function up till some years ago and used to ferry passengers from Jogindernagar. Well so be it, for everything else the place offers, its the quiet charm and the river Uhl which is Barot's essence. Approached from a 35 km long winding road from Ghatasni near Jogindernagar (on Mandi Palampur road) Barot opens a world of opportunities for those looking to trek, cycle or just enjoy some time in the outdoors. The road from Barot now goes up to Badagaon from where you can hike to Bara Bhangal (shepherds countryside The Gaddi Land), Rajgundha pass leading to Billing and Bir (Paragliding country). The most classiest accommodation in Barot is the over a century old HP PWD rest house, and then there are basic home stays and guest houses which are neat and clean. Come here to write your own story, when you were in that time capsule. And include Parashar Lake, Bir, Billing and Palampur in your plan.
