Plan a vacation to Renuka ji for serenity and lush green nature

The holy Renuka ji is in Sirmaur district of Himachal Pradesh, India above 672 mt. from the sea level. Renuka ji is famous for Renuka lake. It is the largest natural lake in Himachal Pradesh, with a circumference of about 3214 mt and 15,000 year old history.

This lake was named after the goddess Renuka. It is believed that Lord Parshuram's mother Bhagwati Renuka Ji jumped in the Ram sarovar and took Jal Samadhi (water burial). Puranas narrate that Ram Sarovar immediately took the shape of a lady and since then it is known as Renuka Ji lake. Every year in November, a fair is held to celebrate the immortality of Renuka and her son legendary Parshuram.  

Renuka lake is surrounded by lush green hills, a lion safari, a zoo and a temple of goddess Renuka. On the periphery of lake there is a small road leading to zoo which you can also use as a jogging track or for a stroll if you stay near Renuka lake.  Don't miss feeding the fish as it would be great fun for kids. You can also enjoy boating in Renuka lake. Do watch out for big turtles roaming freely in the lake.

Renukaji is just 36 Km from Nahan in Himachal Pradesh,  95Km from Chandigarh and about 315 Km. from New Delhi. Best way to travel to Renuka ji is by own car or taxi beyond Nahan.

Where to stay?
Best place to stay at Renuka ji is HPTDC's Renuka hotel. It is the only hotel situated on the bank of Renuka lake. Make sure you have advance booking before you leave for Renuka ji.

There are other hotels as well like Devicos Plaza but they are 1 km away from Renuka ji at Dhadol village. If you're looking on to go for a religious retreat or on a holiday to some calm, green and pure place in nature's lap with your family, Renuka ji is the place. Renuka ji is far away from hustle and bustle of city life and will offer a refreshing retreat in your budget.
