Ropajani Homestay – Tirthan

Ropajani

Ropajani is a small village in Tirthan valley, “Himachal’s best kept secret”, 65 km south of Kullu in Himachal Pradesh. Stunningly beautiful, Ropajani lies just on the gateway to the Great Himalayan National Park – a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on the banks of the Tirthan River. One can easily reach after an hours drive from Aut. The tiny village is made of only 10 families who speak Hindi and Pahadi, and is the center of ancient cultural and local festivals.

Walk into the woods beside the Tirthan River, do fishing, engage with village people, go on undiscovered nature trails or indulge in adventure activities – this quaint little village offers ample opportunities for the offbeat travelers with its untouched landscapes. Come to Ropajani between Feb – June to witness local fairs and festivals.
