The picturesquely beautiful campus of Government College Karsog sprawling around four acres nestles in the lap of nature. It is located at the centre of lush green valley of Karsog and provides ideal aesthetic environs with spiritual serenity in the proximity of the ancient Mamleshwar Mahadev temple. Geographically, the verdant valley of Karsog bows to the Shikari Devi peak (Height 11000 ft), at the same time it spreads down to Kao by touching the feet of Goddess Kamaksha and further descends down to Parlog, the basin of river Sutlej. The most powerful deity of the region is Mul Mahunaag and the temple is situated at the distance of 35 kms from Karsog. The place has been for long the seat of meditation of Gods and Goddesses and various eminent sages like Maharshi Bhrigu and Parshuram.

It is believed that Pandavas also stayed here during their living-Incognito tenure and freed this land from the atrocities and terror of a demon King. The demon had its dreadful terror among people and used to kill them for his food resulting into gloom and sorrow- Sog in one or other house. The mighty Bhima killed the demon and liberated people from their sorrows. In later times, the place came to be popularly known as Karsog. Also known as Beosh region, the valley had been a territory of Suket domain. The famous Suket Satyagraha started from this valley in 1948.
