History

Kullu valley forests have always been rated as some of the best forest estates in the country. A large part of credit for this goes to the Scottish forest officer and keen naturalist, Duff Dunbar. He took great pains in the 1800's to protect the natural regeneration of the deodar forests up and down the valley, and as a result of these efforts, a lovely cover of forests adds to the natural beauty of Manali today.

Back then, Manali was referred on the maps as Duff Dunbar, and Dunbar was one of the most prominent people in the area.
He had put a small hoarding of up-coming deodar trees along the roadside of Manali, saying:

”I am still in my infancy
and crave for your clemency”

When Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru visited Manali in early 1942, he preferred to be photographed under the shelter of these very trees.

 

The Duffdun House stands on the same property which was once Duff Dunbars own home, and that is where the house gets its name from.

About

The Duffdun House is a beautiful bed & breakfast situated in Manali, Himachal Pradesh. It is not far from the liveliness of the town and the excitement of old Manali, while still being located in one of the most picturesque and serene parts of Manali.
