The Tani Jubber Lake is placed among the scenic surroundings of Thanedar nearly 4 kilometers. Here is a quick Photo Journey to the real place in Himalayas !!!
Thanedar has a very special place in the history of Himachal Pradesh, INDIA. The first apple sapling was planted here in Kotagarh near Thanedar... Kotgarh is 15 km. from Narkanda which is a famous hill station for its Apple, Apricot Orchards that are found all over the area. During this trip we also enjoyed fresh Apples and Apricots from Kotgarh... One of our friend borough all that stuff from his home in kotgarh !!!
The beautiful Tani Jubber lake lies between the snow-covered mountains in the backdrop of lusting greenery and apple orchards... Soon I will be sharing some photographs from a Orchard-house where we stayed at Tani Jubber !!!
Tani Jubber is mainly surrounded by high cedars but surrounding village overlooks the enchanting valleys and on a clear day Himalayan snow peaks as well are visible. The place is surrounded by dense forests and is very picturesque in appearance.
Tani Jubber Lake is the home for many kinds of birds. During winters one can see very colorful birds in different shapes and sizes...

Naturally beautiful Tni Jubber Lake is a good place to have a visit. This is not a very popular place on Tourist map of Himachal but there is no doubt about it's beauty. Lake is small but surroundings are amazing and worth a visit...
