Badasaur is one of the hidden and unexplored places in Kullu-Manali. Badasaur is situated amidst deodar forest and mountain peaks. The word ‘Badasaur’ is derived from the two words ‘Bada’ and ‘Saur’. In the local language of Kullu, the word ‘Bada’ means ‘big or vast’ and the word ‘Saur’ means ‘Lake’.

There is a temple of ‘Shri Katrusi Narayan’ (Shri Krishna) in Badasaur and Badasaur has sacred significance for the local people of the valley. So there are certain rules and regulations to be followed. Also, tobacco, alcohol and leather are strictly prohibited in this area.
