Dev Kamrunag A Beautiful Valley

Dev Kamrunag “THE LORD OF RAIN” and Kamrunag valley is one of the best destinations in Himachal Pradesh district Mandi. Relatively less known Himalayan trek, Kamrunag is not even listed well in the official tourism websites of Himachal Pradesh. The Temple of Lord Kamrunag also popularly known as “Bada Deo Kamrunag” – Elder Diety, is situated at an altitude of around 3500 meters. Like all other lakes in Himachal Pradesh, Kamarunag or Kumarwah Lake has its own legend.
The lake is completely frozen in winters and only experienced trekkers should go there during this time of year. Reach at the top and see
Mother Nature at its best! Walking on the frozen lake and a slide along the slanting snowy surfaces can be a pleasant experience to anyone. For new trekkers, it is advisable to visit Kamarunag during summers. A fair is also held at this place on 14th of June every year. People make various offerings including ornaments, coins etc. to fulfill their wishes.
