Barog is a very small town located on the Shimla-Kalka highway in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. The town was little known to have served as a base for tourists travelling to Himachal Pradesh, but tourism in the town of Barog has now grown to a large extent, making it an important tourist destination. The town of Barog is the perfect spot for enjoying a great picnic with nature as the place is nestled in a region of lush green beauty.

The town is named after the engineer who was designing a tunnel near the railway station. After the work was started, due to Barog's miscalculation the ends of the tunnel did not meet and he was fined for Rs 1 from the British government. He could not bear this humiliation and committed suicide. His grave is located near the tunnel, and hence the place got its name.

The Renuka Lake located close to Barog is a very important tourist destination in the region and many tourists flock to the place mainly to see this lake. This lake is the largest lake in the entire state of Himachal Pradesh and it is named after Goddess Renuka, who is also popularly known as the mother of Parashurama in Indian mythology. .
