Devbhoomi: Kullu Valley in Himachal Pradesh
Kullu Valley (1278 metres above sea level) gives a close view of the Greater Himalayas.
Dushehra in Kullu
The beautiful Kullu Valley shows its true colours during the Dushehra festival (September/October) when tourists from all over the world come to Kullu to be a part of local reverence for Divinity. People from villages and small towns of Himachal Pradesh bring deities from temples all over Himachal and honour the age-old festival with pride and love.
Kullu is a trekker’s delight. Many old temples, Parashar lake, and caves where Yogis practised are a quiet attraction for those seeking this part of the Himalayas.
