The Tribal Heritage Museum houses ancient artifacts painstakingly collected by Dr. Sher Singh Pangti, a local resident. These exhibits portray the life styles of the original inhabitants of the Johar valley and their moments of past history.

Located 4 kms from the resort is Darkot , a small picturesque hamlet. Residents of this village continue to live in traditional stone houses with slate roofs, some of which are more than one hundred years old. The old artistic houses of Darkot represent the rich culture and creativity of the people of Munsiyari. If you are discerning shopper then do buy pashima, shawls and sheepwool blankets from here. The locals are known for their great weaving skills.

Goriganga is a river that originates from the snout of Milam glacier. It is also fed by glaciers and streams flowing from the eastern slopes of the east wall of the Nanda Devi Sanctuary, and those flowing west from the high peaks of Panchchuli. There are several spots along the banks of the river that are ideal for day picnics. A drive along the banks of the Goriganga takes you past the villages of Madkot, Choribagar and Bangapani – all so quaint and with little trace of the 21st century !
