The picturesque hill station of Mandi (800 m above sea level) is shrouded in history and owes its name to the sage Mandava. Popularly known as the " Varanasi of the Hills" this colonial town located on the banks of the rippling Beas River occupies an area of 3950 sq. km.

The 2001 Census has recorded a population of 9.01 lakhs. The people of Mandi follow an agrarian economy and cultivate rice, pulses, millets, tea, sesame seed, groundnut, sunflower oil and herbal products.

The quintessential hill station with its quaint culture attracting tourists from all over the world is located 50 km from the capital city of Shimla. The notable tourist spots of Mandi include the stunning Rewalsar Lake with its floating islands, the Prashar lakes with its exotic pagodas and the hydroelectric plant at Jogindernagar. Besides Sundernagar, renown for housing Asia's largest hydroelectric project, the Beas- Sutlej project and the treeking zones of Janjheli with its picture postcard chiaroscuro are also worth visiting.
