Sohna
 

The small town of Sohna is an important tourist place, located 24kms from the city on the highway from Gurgoan to Alwar, near a vertical rock.  The town derived its name from the gold dust which was found from the sands of streams, after heavy rains in the beds of the neighbouring torrents. The place can be accessible only by foot through narrow paths which are unreachable to vehicles.

Sohna is well - known for its hot water springs. The water is strongly sulphurous and its temperature varies from 46° C to 51.7 °C. In ancient times, sohna is believed to be the abode of hermits and the main kund ( tank) called Shiv Kund, is said to have medicinal properties and curative effect. Devotees considered it as sacred and during solar/ lunar eclipse and Somavati Amavasya, they gather here for taking a dip in the water.

This picturesque health-cum-holiday resort lies atop the Aravalli hills offers a breathtaking view of the landscape below. Haryana Government has built a Barbet Hut complete with its own sitting area and an attached kitchen for tourists. A motel wing has air-conditioned rooms for stay. A four bed dormitory, family huts and simple camper huts have been built for every-budget tourists. The facilities like bar, restaurant, green lawns, health club with steam/ sauna/ sulpur baths, mini splash pool are also available.  

The night view of Sohna is breathtaking. Every year in the month of February, a Statesman Vintage Car Rally to the Sohna hill is held and Haryana Tourism celebrates the day with a mela event.
