Are you ready for a trip to the ‘Valley of Gods’? Kullu, the land of snow-capped mountains, apple orchards, and romantic valleys, is waiting for you!
Oh, and did I mention it’s a hot spot for adventure sports too? Trekking, river rafting, mountaineering, paragliding, and hiking – you name it, Kullu has it!
If you’re an avid trekker, you’ll be thrilled to know that some of the most popular treks such as the Bijli Mahadev temple trek, and the Parvati valley trek, originate from Kullu. And if you’re looking for some spirituality, Kullu is famous for its beautiful temples like Bijli Mahadev, Raghunath, Hanogi Mata, Jagannath Devi, and Gauri Shankar temples.
Kullu’s scenic beauty is best enjoyed between summer and winter. And if you’re planning to visit in October, you’re in for a treat! The Kullu Dussehra festival is a grand celebration that has been accredited with the status of an International festival by the State Government. People from all over the world come to witness this colourful festival at Dhalpur Maidan. It’s said that when Manu visited this valley during the Great Flood, he could not go beyond Rohtang Pass. He named the last settlement he found ‘Kulant Peeth’, meaning the end of the habitable world’. This name further transformed into ‘Kulut’, before finally being known as ‘Kulu’ or ‘Kullu’ today.
Kullu is the perfect getaway from your mundane life. Get lost in its beautiful valleys and let its serene temples calm your soul. And if you’re an adventure junkie, don’t forget to pack your trekking boots and a brave heart. Kullu is waiting for you!
