As Tattapani is situated at an altitude of 655 Meters, so almost we have to go deep down at least 1500 Meters from MSL, for this we have to travel 25 KM, from Naldehra. It is very famous tourist place one for Rafting and another for numbers of hot water springs on the bank of Satluj River, so it has got the name Tattapani. Driving deep down with a lot of bends journey becomes much exciting, and you are so close to the nature that you can feel, and that brings a change in our thinking and views. Water at Tattapani gives relief in joint pains and many other skin diseases, in the winter you can not enjoy the Rafting but springs deliver very warm water. All the year it attracts the tourist.
