About Kullu
 
The most charming and beautiful Kulu valley spreads out its charm on either side of river Beas. The valley runs north to south of this river and is 80kms. long and about 2kms. at its broadest. Yet with awe inspiring glens and mossy meadows encircled by the rushing streams and meandering brooks, flung east & west, a fairly wide area is open to the tourists, the trekkers, the mountaineers, the artists and to anyone who wishes to escape the heat & dust of the plains to breathe the exhilarating air of the Himalaya and enjoy the spectacle of the variegated mountain scenery.

The pious abode of Gods & Goddesses is serenely set by the winding banks of the river Beas. Though it is a favorite haunt of numerous travelers yet the place has managed to escape the wrath of mad modernism. It continues to offer calm and placed atmosphere with the background music of gushing river waters. The place has been mentioned in Hieun Tsang's memorable travelogue. It changed many hands before coming under British rule in the 19th century. Weather here is very enchanting from April to June. It turns into a paradise for trekkers and mountaineering daredevils from September to November. A week long Dusshera celebration in October adorns the entire valley with a rare, color festive look full of religious fervour.
